Can teething cause fever for my 7 mounth baby?

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

As to appetite, would you want to eat if your teeth were sore? Please see Pediatric Dental Specialist (1st Dental exam Age 1). See Pediatrician to check for cold/virus. You must see both. ...Read more

Hope the baby is better quickly. ...Read more

Can teething cause flu symptoms in baby?

Can teething cause flu symptoms in baby?

No, not flu symptoms: Some babies have no symptoms at all. Most will have excess saliva, want to chew on things and perhaps be a little cranky. A few may develop low grade fever and/or mild diarrhea.

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

I can't afford teething medicine is there anything I can do for my baby he's 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

Hi my baby start teething and she is always crying. And having fever what can I do to help her?

Teething and pain: Generally Ibuprofen is much more effective for teething than tylenol (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 in any one day. Acetaminophen really challenges the liver. Massaging the gum tissue with a soft bristle brush can also help. ...Read more

Does teething cause a low grade fever?

Teething fever?: I don't think anyone can answer that question for sure. There seems to be a disagreement in the dental and medical community on that issue. It's possible. Having said that, if your child has a low grade fever, I would check with your own pediatrician as to what he\she believes and whether it would be a good idea to have your child in for an evaluation. ...Read more

My almost 5 month old ebf baby has a 100.8 fever. Been a little fussy today but nothing else going on. Could it be teething or should I take him in?

My almost 5 month old ebf baby has a 100.8 fever. Been a little fussy today but nothing else going on. Could it be teething or should I take him in?

What other sx?: Fever @ a 100.8 level is common in infants with a wide variety of minor and some significant illnesses. I find tylenol (acetaminophen) can give comfort & take a degree off a temp, but any resolution will be the illness going thru its cycles. If baby is playing some & taking fluids well enough to wet every 6hrs, u may be able to ride this out at home. If quiet, taking poorly etc. Call in & or see the dr. ...Read more
