I do highly recommend the 'rice pack' honestly. I get very nervous about giving the kids some sort of medicine for every ache and pain, even when it's a legitimate ache and pain. When other things work (like a hot pack), it sends the message that it's possible to address discomforts and unhappinesses with other things than drugs.
