Oral sensitivities and illness treatment

by w
(massachusetts)

Our daughter is almost three, and has been dealing with oral sensitivities and tactile defensiveness. She has been sick recently and refuses to take any medications by mouth. We fear that she is going to need an antibiotic and were wondering if anyone is aware of alternate routes for giving antibiotic meds? We have had to give suppository fever reducers which we hate doing, but we just don't know if there is anything else to do.

We seem to have better luck with chewable tablets. My son is an extremely picky eater but he doesn't seem to mind the chewables. If that doesn't work some pharmacies will flavor an antibiotic whatever flavor you want. My son loves apple juice so when he needed a liquid medicine I had it flavored apple and just mixed it with his juice. I believe Rite-Aid and Walgreens do this

I have the same problem with my daughter who is 8. I usually try and request a capsule and then I break open the capsule and mix it with cool whip.
