Coincidence: Teething does not cause infants to get rash.

Not related: Nappy (diaper) rash and teething are two unrelated events that sometimes just happen to occur at the same time. Babies get nappy rash when their tender skin is in contact with a soiled diaper for too long a time. This can occur whether or not they are teething. One does not cause the other.
