Thanks for writing to us.

Since your child c/o toothache,most probably child's tooth may be decayed.

Get a thorough clinical evaluation by a dentist and get the infected tooth restored or root canal treated.

Brush and floss your child's teeth daily.

Rinse mouth after every meals.

Amoxycillin syrup along with analgesics will help to relieve pain.

Hope this helps.
