(Reuters) – Pharmacy chain Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc said on Monday it has removed online-only purchase limits for its over-the-counter pediatric fever-reducing products, as supply conditions improve.

Pharmacy chains including CVS Health Corp and Walgreens as well as U.S. grocer Kroger Co had last month limited purchases of children’s pain and cold medicines at a time when the country was experiencing one of the worst flu seasons in a decade.

Walgreens had put a limit of six over-the-counter pediatric fever reducer products per online transaction.
