Ibuprofen is best. But you can also give calpol at the same time and anbesol liquid only available at the chemist over the counter is the best topically medication.

You can use all three if needed.

Oh bless her! Tough times. I'm not 100% but I think the guidelines have changed with giving Calpol and ibuprofen at the same time? I've been categorically told not to do that but to space them out i.e Calpol first then 2 hours later ibubrofen & only a certain amount of each within 24 hours, Calpol 4 hours, ibubrofen 6 hours apart (always check the label). I've heard anbesol is good but haven't tried it, I use Ashton & Parsons with great success but every baby is different. Hope she gets through the worst soon!
