Cool Gel ’n Cap, a unique first aid cap for children developed right here in Western New York, can help relieve your child’s fear and discomfort from bumps and bruises, earaches, ear infections and headaches. In this week’s article, we’ll cover the topic of earaches.

Earaches in children are a periodic source of discomfort, particularly in toddlers. In fact, toddlers have about four earaches per year, on average.

What's the difference between an earache and ear infection? According to Dr. Alan Greene at www.drgreene.com, “Earaches and ear infections overlap each other, but are not identical. This often causes confusion. An earache is the feeling of pain in the ear.

The Friends of the Youngstown Free Library and Old Fort Niagara are collaborating on an exciting new series of programs for children, ages 8 to 12, and their families who are interested in learning about the history of our region. The four-part series will bring to life four characters from “The Gold-Laced Coat,” by Helen Fuller Orton, a classic 1934 novel for children that tells the story of young people at Fort Niagara during the French and Indian War. Each program will include an activity and craft related to the featured character. Each participating child will also receive a copy of “The Gold-Laced Coat.”

On Wednesday evenings, March 30 and April 6, 13 and 27, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., Old Fort Niagara’s staff of talented storytellers and re-enactors will create living history in the Red Brick Gym, located at 240 Lockport Street (Rt. 93) in Youngstown.

When a Child Has a Headache, Cool Gel ‘n Cap Can Help

When a Child Has a Headache, Cool Gel ‘n Cap Can Help

Cool Gel 'n Cap, a unique first aid cap for children developed in Western New York, can help relieve your child’s fear and discomfort from bumps and bruises, earaches, ear infections and headaches. In this article, we’ll explore the headache angle.

Parents often ask doctors, “Why do kids get headaches?” and “Should I be concerned if my child complains of one?” Kids’ headaches are actually quite common. Studies have shown that 40 percent of children have had a headache by age seven, and three out of four have had them by age 15. Of those, 4 percent are migraine sufferers.

Most headaches in children are only temporary inconveniences. But because they can sometimes indicate a more serious problem, a persistent headache should never be ignored.
