When a Child Has a Headache, Cool Gel ‘n Cap Can Help

Cool Gel 'n Cap, a unique first aid cap for children developed in Western New York, can help relieve your child’s fear and discomfort from bumps and bruises, earaches, ear infections and headaches. In this article, we’ll explore the headache angle.
