A 21-year-old female asked:

Teething help: We frequently see an increase in saliva flow with teething. There is really nothing to stop it. It should go back to normal after the teeth are in. You can let your baby chew on a cold teething ring. Some parents have found camilia and/or Ibuprofen really aids in teething discomfort. Massaging the gum tissue with a soft bristle brush can also help.

Help with teething: Generally Ibuprofen is much more effective for teething than acetaminophen.You can also let your baby chew on a cold teething ring. Some parents have found camilia really aids in teething discomfort. It is important you do not give your baby more than four doses of Acetaminophen per day. Acetaminophen really challenges the liver. Massaging the gum tissue with a soft bristle brush can also help.

Teething : The symptoms of teething are highly variable between children. He is probably getting new molars. Some children get teeth without any symptoms at all, while others are just miserable. Cold teething rings, pain medications and messaging the gum areas can help somewhat. Ibuprofen usually works much better than acetaminophen. A natural treatment named camilia can help. Good luck!
