Children are curious. They love to explore and as anyone with a small child will tell you, they love to put things in their mouths. They also like to copy adults and this might include “taking medicine”. Of course, they don’t understand the dangers that some products pose so it’s up to us to protect them.
Most of us could comfortably treat a minor scrape or manage a low-grade fever at home, but if you, or someone close to you, is seriously hurt or becomes very unwell it’s time to visit the Emergency Department.
