My two year old son has a fever at the moment. I called my family doctor and he said to give my son nurofen. I thought that nurofen was not allowed for such small kids? I am happy to follow my doctor's instructions and get rid of the fever but I want to find out about any possible side effects of nurofen in children first. Can you help?

Nurofen is a brand name for the medication ibuprofen, which is definitely safe for children. Not only does ibuprofen lower fevers practically immediately, it is also a pain killer as well as a mild anti-inflammatory. All of this makes it my medication of choice in case of the flu. I hope that puts your mind at rest?
