Brief Answer: Can give calcarea phos Detailed Answer: Hello and welcome. Thanks for sharing your concern. As per the history posted here it appears that the child is irritable due to teething problem only.At this age, they also do many activities to draw elders attention towards them.It should be carefully observed and dealt with. Please make a note that her diet should be rich with fruits ,vegetables and dietary fibers.At this stage, it is not recommended to give any supplemental calcium but you can try Calcarea Phos (a homeopathic medicine)which has shown good results in many of my patients between age group of 2 to 5years. Also make a note that the child should frequently wash her hands before putting her fingers in the mouth.This prevents diarrhea and stomach infections which are again common in this age group. Hope I have answered your query. Please let me know for further help. Thanks. Take care.

Brief Answer: Not recommended Detailed Answer: Hello and thanks for reply. In that case I would say please see your pediatrician before giving any self medication to child younger than two years old. Usually phenargan is not recommended under two years of age. Hope it helps. Thanks. Take care.
