Alertly: Most teeth erupt without causing pain. So, when you think it’s teething pain, first be sure that there is no other reason for the crying: fever, injury, illness, emotion. For any pain, Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen will usually be effective, but will take up to 70 minutes to reach max effect. Letting the child bite on a clean, cool wet washcloth will help.
