Alternative Methods of Medication for Child

Have a 7 year old daughter who has a serious aversion to taking medication orally. Some pain medication for high temperature etc at the moment given by supporisitory. No the best method.

Is there any patches or skin application gel, etc, medication available for keeping temperature down on children.

The other one is anti-biotics, when needed. Havent succeeded in getting her to take by mouth at all.

Thanks all

Re: Alternative Methods of Medication for Child

Compounding Pharmacies can often make medications in creams, lozenges, lollipops, etc but you need a prescription from your doctor and most conventional MDs don't know about them, or won't use them because they are often associated with holistic practitioners.
