Yes: Fever is a common "side effect" of teething in infants. Monitor the temperature and call your doctor if it gets above 102, or if your infant has other symptoms (cough, runny nose, congestion, etc.) as there can be other causes of fever as well. ...Read more

Infant fever 7 months old. It could be from teething. But do I do. And can I give him water and how much?

Infant fever 7 months old. It could be from teething. But do I do.  And can I give him water and how much?

Doubt teething: Historically teething has been blamed for many symptoms but in reality most infants cut teeth without significant consequence. Fever greater than 100.5 is most likely related to a viral infection and could be treated with Motrin or tylenol (acetaminophen). If fever persists for more than 3 days or your baby has persistent inconsolable crying he should definitely be seen. 1-2 oz of water in a sippy cup is ok. ...Read more

I can't afford teething medicine is there anything i can do for my baby hes in pain and has a fever?

I can't afford teething medicine is there anything i can do for my baby hes in pain and has a fever?

Teething Pain: I would recommend a baby aspirin, following the directions on the bottle or box that it comes in. You can rub the gums gently, similar to a massage, with your fingertip, or even a moist q-tip. Ideally, oragej would be a good solution that is safe for babies that are teething. I do not think that this is very expensive, and a single tube should last for your baby's entire teething period. ...Read more

My 5 montha old baby has been having a fever around 37.1c since yesterday. He is feeding and active. Should i be worried? Could it be he is teething?

My 5 montha old baby has been having a fever around 37.1c since yesterday. He is feeding and active. Should i be worried? Could it be he is teething?

Not fever: Under 38c which is 100.4f is not considered fever why did you take it he could be teething but that alone would not cause a fever. If teething you are lucky as he is not showing it i would not take the temp unless the baby is showing some abnormal behavior or symptoms i assume you are following your md advice about feeding and have started solid foods good luck with your child. ...Read more

Can teething cause on and off fevers in a 10 month old ? And diaherra?

Can teething cause on and off fevers in a 10 month old ? And diaherra?

Maybe: The average 10mo is both acquiring teeth & sticking his/her hands in their mouth covered with new germs from their surroundings.Whether this is teeth or low grade viral illness is hard to say. I expect about 3 diarrheal illnesses & 5-7 respiratory viruses/yr at this stage. Since we can't fix either i think we blame teeth a bit more than they really deserve. ...Read more
