Motrin Children’s is a bubblegum-flavored medicine used to reduce fever and relieve minor aches and pains from common colds, flu, sore throat, headache, and toothache. 

As a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), Motrin Children’s Bubblegum works by interfering with the body’s production of specific natural substances (prostaglandins) that cause pain and inflammation.
