Help! How to alleviate the pain of a broken collar bone!
Just two days ago my 6 year old son broke his clavicle (collar bone) on his right side. He tripped over a friend and landed on his shoulder. We went to the ER and got Xrays. Now 2 days later he is in alot of pain. Of course it is hard to slow down a 6 year old boy in Kindergarten. I am giving him Motrin and Ibruprofren... alternating them every 6-8 hours. And I know that ice in a baggie wrapped in a towel can be helpful as well. But is there anything else I can do for my baby? He is crying and asking for the medicine like every two hours and I cant give it to him that often. Is there anything else I can do to help my baby? Sling, OTC Med, and Ice are not helping as much as we had hoped.
