A US pharmacist has been praised after prescribing ‘monster spray’ to a six year old girl who told him she was scared at night.

North Dakota pharmacist Jeff Dodds wrote and filled the prescription last year. The unnamed girl’s parents recently posted the photo online, and the image and the heartwarming story went viral.

The spray’s label includes instructions. It is to be used nightly before bed to repel scary monsters. It’s good for one year, and contains 120 doses.

Many social media users expressed their approval.

“I wished people cared more like this; the world would be a better place,” wrote one.
