No parent with young children should be without Viburcol Suppositories natural calmative for restless infants and children! When a child has a common cold, struggles with teething, has a mild fever or a mild (upper respiratory) infection, Viburcol offers fantastic and natural relief. Ideal for kids who find swallowing oral medication difficult, or refuse to take ‘bad-tasting’ medicine. Since feverish disorders in young children often go accompanied by nausea and/or vomiting, rectal suppositories are a particularly effective form of administration. Viburcol’s action is based on Chamomile for restlessness, excitation, insomnia and hypersensitivity; Belladonna for fever, and 4 additional constituents indicated for various symptoms relating to tearfulness and irritability generally.

Viburcol Suppositories natural calmative for restless infants and children offers relief for restlessness, in teething problems and minor infections with or without fever. Babies and toddlers can get restless for all sort of reasons, medical and non-medical, so it’s great to have something in the cabinet that works and is 100% safe. Restlessness often is a symptom associated with increased temperature or fever. Painkillers and antipyretics such as Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen may reduce these symptoms relatively quickly, but, as you know, these should neither be used often nor over a longer period of time. That is why Viburcol is ideal for those first years: restlessness, tearfulness and irritability are reduced naturally and your child’s food and fluid intake (swallowing) problems improve. Viburcol also relieves restlessness and discomfort in the evening and can thus facilitate falling asleep. Sleep is when the body repairs itself.

How to insert Viburcol suppositories

It is easy and painless. He/she who inserts the suppositories washes his/her hands with soap and water (or use hand sanitizer) and dries them off. The recipient lies down on his/her side with the top leg slightly bent toward his/her stomach and with the bottom leg straight. Moisten the tip of the suppository with some K-Y Jelly, this makes insertion so much easier. If you don’t have lubricating jelly, apply a small amount of water to the recipient’s rectal area. Relax the buttocks to make it easier to insert the suppository (e.g. tell a story during the process). Insert the suppository into the rectum, narrow end first. Gently but firmly, push the suppository past the sphincter. The sphincter is the muscular opening of the rectum. For adults, push it in one inch. For children, depending on their size, push it in a half inch to one inch. And for infants, push it in about a half inch. The recipient then lies with his/her legs closed for a few minutes. If you are giving the suppository to a child, you may need to gently hold their buttocks closed during this time. Wash your hands right away with soap and warm water.

How to insert Viburcol suppositories

If the person who is inserting the Viburcol suppositories wishes to wear single-use disposable gloves, note that the allergen content of disposable rubber gloves varies widely and is higher in powdered gloves than in powder-free gloves and higher in examination gloves than in surgical gloves. IgE-mediated sensitisation to rubber proteins may affect the wearer of the glove, not the recipient of the suppository.

  1. Mrs Eccles

    The suppositories do take a little bit longer to work, an hour versus 15-20 minutes for the drops – but after taking, baby settles down and feels noticeably better. These are an excellent remedy especially young babies for their first few colds and in ear infections. I am relieved to have found an alternative to soothe baby rather than Tylenol. Thanks, Marjorie.

  2. Gloria

    Worked every time for my toddler whether he had a fever or irritability of any sort! A real life saver and I am really pleased to find it on your site again!

  4. Marie J. van den Assum

    Viburcol is a life saver for parents. We have used it for both our girls when they were young, it settled them down really quickly (15 min or so) and it makes sure that as a parent you get an uninterrupted night’s sleep! We used it when they were unsettled, when faced with the physical and mental developments which in their perception are really scary, when teething, any other ailments, (which they did not have many off thanks to homeopathic and herbal remedies) with or without fever.
