Dr. Sunnie Skiles
Pediatrics 34 years experience
Teething: the best medication is Acetaminophen in appropriate doses and only when the teething is causing excess discomfort. Keep in mind that teething is an ongoing process and not always the only case of discomfort. Teething doses not cause fever or a runny nose. If your baby seems in too much pain, take him/her to see your pediatrician to be sure that is all that is the problem.
Dr. Paul Grin
Pain Management 36 years experience
Teething: There are many of things you can do before resorting to pain relief products or teething gels. Apply cold spoon over your baby's sore gums to numb the pain, give your baby a teething ring. The teething gels usually contain a local anesthetic and an antiseptic, will alleviate the pain and prevent infection. Rec.: check with your pediatrician for more information.

Teething: Many babies and children will have minimal or no symptoms when they are teething so will not need any treatment. If your child is in pain with his/her teething, then giving paracetamol or ibuprofen may help. These should be given at the recommended doses for their age.
