How To’s and More Tips On Making Your Child’s Injections Painless

Treatments for autoinflammatory diseases commonly require a patient to receive injections under the skin, which can be tricky if you are the parent of a small child (or large husband) who hates needles.

If this describes you, or someone you know, you might be interested in the Autoinflammatory Alliance’s helpful (and free) publication called Healthier Ever After.

The booklet offers practical advice on injections, like the importance of setting a routine for children, traveling safely with medicines and medical supplies, and overcoming needle anxiety. It encourages parents to work as a team with their child and provides tips on how to explain, in easy-to-understand terms, why the injections are necessary for their child’s health. There’s even a reusable “Rewards Scoreboard” and stickers inside to track your child’s injection times and positive performance!

If you’re a parent looking for tips on how to make injecting your child a little more painless, this booklet is a perfect tool.

We give it FIVE STARS!
