Q. What can I give my child if they develop a fever on Pesach?
A. Each year, the cRc researches different fever-reducers and pain relievers to see which are suitable for use for Pesach. Some of the results are ready in time for inclusion in the printed cRc Pesach Guide, and some others can only be found in the cRc app, or at www.ASKcRc.org.
You may notice that our recommendation for many of these items is that they are “possible chametz”, which means that they contain ingredients which are sensitive for Pesach but likely do not pose a Pesach concern. You might want to consult with your Rabbi before Pesach so that he can direct as to when it is appropriate to give “possible chametz” to a sick child (or adult).
