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

My 10 month old son has red bumps on his cheeks and when i touch them they are warm, he is teething could that be the cause?

Doubtful: While teething may cause a bit of irritability and very low grade temperature, unless the bumps are from the excessive drooling (and this is usually right around the mouth), bumps on cheeks and other places would not be attributable to teething. It may be a little heat rash, irritation from something that contacted his cheeks (detergents, soaps, perfumes, etc). Would just keep an eye on things. ...Read more

10 month old had 2 uti's , had symptoms for #3 in less 2 months.. On meds. Culture neg, waiting to do tests could teething cause high white blood cells?

No: Teething does not cause an elevation of your white blood cell count. An elevated WBC count a this age is almost always due to an infection somewhere, and with a history of uti's already i would be looking in this area. It could be a kidney abcess, blood infection, or infection totally somewhere else in the body. There are other more rare causes of elevated wbc's, but teething is not one of them. ...Read more
