Brief Answer:
Odomos is safe

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing to us.
Odomos is safe and approved my medical body.
It can be used in kids.
Avoid applying on fingers and below wrist. This is to prevent the ointment entering the mouth accident accidentally.
You need to apply every 6 hours to get round the clock protection.
It is usually less allergic but very rarely some kids develop a rash in which case you need to stop it.
Wishing your child good health.
Regards
Dr Arun
