Over the counter analgesics are limited to aspirin dosed at 10 mg/lb with food twice daily and acetaminophen dosed at 7 mg/lb thrice daily. You must avoid the toxic ibuprofen and naproxen. Aspirin is best avoided if the pain is originating in Oscar's GI tract. Are there other symptoms which localize Oscar's pain?
