My 4 year old son had fever twice during the month of May. The first fever was due to tonsilitis and the second fever was due to H. influenza. Both times I was forced to give him Panadol & Voltaren to bring his high fever down. My husband told me that his mother used to give him baby aspirin to bring down his fever when he was a child. I thought this would be a good idea since Ray has enlightened us on the benefits of Aspirin. I looked for baby aspirin for children and found none. Every "baby aspirin" I found OTC was for adults who needed aspirin in small doses. The reason that baby aspirin is no longer "safe" for babies and children is because of the claim that Aspirin used in children under the age of 19 are at risk for Reye's Syndrome. Can someone tell me if this is a real risk and if it is still possible to use baby aspirin for children safely?
