∞ Treatments to relieve common complaints such as pain, fever, vomiting, allergies and asthma
∞ Recommendations to deal with common illnesses such as chickenpox, glandular fever and ear infections
∞ Advice on coping with serious disorders such as meningitis, diabetes, chronic illnesses, and hospital stays
