Pain in Babies & Children
As your little one is growing up, there are many things which can cause them pain or discomfort. This can range from teething pain, to minor injuries from bumps or knocks.
Common types of pains in children
When little ones are growing they can experience a variety of aches and pains. Toddlers and children can easily acquire minor injuries from bumps and knocks while playing or learning to walk. But they may also experience general aches and pains in their legs, head and ears.
Below we discuss growing pains and headaches. For information on pain associated with sore throats, coughs, and colds, visit our information pages on these ailments.
While harmless, growing pains (mainly in the leg) in children can cause them discomfort. Growing pain is common in young children and pain is usually felt mainly in the leg muscles, not the joint, and gets worse in the evening or night-time. But the actual cause of growing pains isn’t clear. They can come on after lots of exercise. They usually appear in more active children aged three to four years old and can continue into the early teens. Growing pains in children can come and go and might last months, or years.
You can take comfort that growing pains usually aren’t an indication of anything serious, however.
Headaches in children can be different to adult headaches. The most common headache disorders are migraine and tension type headaches. Regular headaches that affect the whole head and come with vomiting or stomach pain could be an indication of a migraine in a child.
Tension headaches in children usually last around 30 minutes.
A high temperature is very common in young children. The temperature usually returns to normal within 3 or 4 days.
A normal temperature in babies and children is about 36.4C, but this can vary slightly from child to child.
A high temperature is 38C or more.
A high temperature is the body’s natural response to fighting infections like coughs and colds.
Many things can cause a high temperature in children, from common childhood illnesses like chickenpox and tonsillitis, to vaccinations.
Your child might:
Use a digital thermometer, which you can buy from pharmacies and supermarkets, to take your child’s temperature.
You can usually look after your child or baby at home. The temperature should go down over 3 or 4 days.
