I am not a doctor, we are all here on this forum to help answer questions & perhaps help people.

For oral dosage form (tablets and suspension):

For fever:
Children over 2 years of age—Use and dose must be determined by your doctor.
Children 6 months of age up to 2 years—Dose is based on body weight and body temperature, and must be determined by your doctor. For fever lower than 102.5 °F (39.2 °C), the dose usually is 5 milligrams (mg) per kilogram (kg) (about 2.2 mg per pound) of body weight. For higher fever, the dose usually is 10 mg per kg (about 4.5 mg per pound) of body weight. The medicine may be given every six to eight hours, as needed, up to 40 mg per kg per day.

For menstrual cramps:
Children—Use and dose must be determined by your doctor.

For mild to moderate pain:
Children over 6 months of age—Dose is based on body weight and must be determined by your doctor. The dose usually is 10 milligrams (mg) per kilogram (kg) of body weight every six to eight hours, as needed, up to 40 mg per kg per day.

For osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis:
Children—Dose is based on body weight and must be determined by your doctor. The dose usually is 30 milligrams (mg) to 40 mg per kilogram (kg) of body weight per day, divided into three or four doses.

You need to take your 10 year old to a doctor, please, do not self medicate, take care.
