Hello friend...Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question :-)
Paracetamol is one of the most frequently used OTC medicines for pain relief in Australia. It can be used to treat mild to moderate pain and fever in children. Paracetamol has only a minimal effect on inflammation (redness, swelling). Paracetamol is the active ingredient in a number of OTC products for children, including drops, suspensions, tablets and suppositories.
Ibuprofen is one of the most widely used non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) in Australian children. Ibuprofen may also be used to treat mild to moderate pain and fever. Unlike paracetamol, ibuprofen can also reduce inflammation. Ibuprofen is the active ingredient in a number of OTC products for children, including suspensions and chewable tablets. It is not currently available in suppository form.
Here is the complete answer! Please let me know if you need any clarification. Please best with a 5*. Thank you and Godbless!!!
