You : You did the right thing by giving her a pain reliever. Consider trying children's advil (ibuprofen) in the future. I have found it to be much more effective for pain relief. Hopefully your daughter is better by now. However, if this is a recurring issue she should definitely see the pediatrician. Also, make sure she has her vision checked. One of the most common causes of headache in kids is vision problems, allergies/sinus issues are also high on the list. All the best. ...Read more

This gives more pain relief and Ibuprofen can control inflammation also. So these differences can give different effects, etc.. Best of luck. ...Read more
