(Reuters) – Pharmacy chain Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA) 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 (NYSE:CVS) and Walgreens as well as U.S. grocer Kroger (NYSE:KR) 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.
