Patience is the key. You know your child well and are aware of the behavior they display when overly tired, hungry, haven’t gotten enough sleep, or anything in between. The reactions you may exhibit are completely reasonable, given the discomfort they may experience. You can give your child Tylenol or ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) to reduce the pain and fever, but do not give aspirin. If fussiness persists, arms or legs begin swelling, or other concerning side-effects become noticeable for more than 24 hours, please call us.
