Pharmacies set limits on children's pain medication amid flu, RSV surge

You may have to rely on other methods to treat your children’s illnesses as the country battles RSV, the flu, and COVID-19. According to the Associated Press, CVS and Walgreens will limit the purchases of some children’s pain and fever medications. An increased demand and supplier challenges are why the two national retailers are being proactive in their approach before the national shortage of the products becomes more widespread. Behind the counter, the prescription antibiotic amoxicillin used to treat nose and throat infections in children is also becoming hard to find due to the increased demand. Door County Public Health Officer Eric Krawczyk encourages you to take those preventative measures before you get sick.

If you need medications to treat your children, you are advised to shop around or try generic versions of the same drug. For those looking for non-medicinal aid, baths in lukewarm water, humidifiers, and honey could be other ways to treat the symptoms besides rest.
