Last week, Alicia Holder took to Facebook to warn her friends about a bad experience she and her young daughter had. 


Little Riley was not feeling great, so Alicia went out and bought a bottle of Nurofen for children,and gave her daughter the required dose.

The outraged mum continued "myself, Greg and my brother all had small tastes and suffered a spicy burning feeling at the backs of our throats."



Alicia shared her story on Facebook, and urged parents to taste test medicines before giving it to their little ones.

Alicia has reached out to the Nurofen manufacturers, and is waiting for a response.
