Tylenol (acetaminophen): Is the only medicine you should use, unless you have him seen by the doctor to make sure other medications are safe and/or helpful. If tylenol (acetaminophen) is not good enough, then you should have him seen.
Dr. Mandakini Patel
Pediatrics 41 years experience
We usually do not use Tylenol for stomach pain. If it persist your child needs to be seen. Also, if it is form something he ate or viral infection it should pass, unless he is not able to keep any fluids down form it, and has vomiting or diarrhea you should call ur pediatrician.

Better questions...: Ask your child: in what position do you feel better/ worse? What is the quality of pain--sharp, stabbing, pressure, bloating, gassiness? Where in your abdomen (right, mid, left) do you experience discomfort? Duration pain lasts? Is pain deep or superficial? Have you seen blood with stool or change in bowels? Concentrate on finding cause ; cure, not just symptom control--get him/her to doctor.
