Although we would like to always be prepared to help your child in just exactly the way he or she prefers, the reality is there might come a time when the preferred items are not available.
In these situations, having your own “comfort kit” with all the supplies needed to support your child can make a huge difference. Kits can be stored in a special bag that you take with you to all medical visits.
- Numbing cream (4% Lidocaine), available over-the-counter.
- Tegaderm™, a large band-aid or a piece of material to keep the cream or ice in place.
- Cold spray or a Buzzy® bee with ice pack.
