How Long Does Drool Rash Associated With Teething Last
Any rash will last as long as the cause is present. Some good ways to deal with teething pain are teething rings or frozen wash clothes. Use tylenol (acetaminophen) for severe teething discomfort only.
Try applying neosporin to the rash and keep the area clean wiping away saliva frequently. ...Read more
Bad breath, rash in body, drooling too much, fever, irritated, restlesness, not much appetite, teething in my 14 month old why? Concerned about rash
My baby has what appears to be a drool rash on her chest, I've tried lotions, ointments, powder & she wears a bib 24/7. But nothing works.?
Possible causes: You are right in thinking that drool can irritate the skin. It is common for babies to have irritant rashes on the chin, neck, and chest as a result. Vaseline normally works well if used frequently. For an area which stays damp, a yeast rash is also possible. I would suggest checking with her pediatrician and get their input or have her seen if it persists. ...Read more

6 mth old very frequent, green mucuousy BM for 6 days. No rash or fever. Alert and pleasant. PCP said it was teething. How so? How long will it last?
Loose link: There is no strong evidence that teething causes diarrhea or fever, contrary to popular belief. Green stools in an infant can be caused by infection, diet, or malabsorption. Babies with non-bloody diarrhea without vomiting, weight loss, fever or other signs of illness can be closely monitored for a few days, but beyond this should be evaluated for an underlying condition. ...Read more
Advice for a cranky baby that's teething? He has never been cranky. No fever. He is 6 months old and drools to the point where a bit of mouth rash
Teething.: Teething pain can make babies cranky, but it shouldn't be as bad as it sounds. 6 months usually means first teeth; I'm guessing. Drooling can also be a sign of sore throat, even without fever. If pain medicine isn't working; see your doctor. If the rash is on the skin around the mouth; try some ointment, to try to keep it waterproofed. If is on the lips or inside the mouth; it's not from teething. ...Read more

My 5 month old baby is drooling a lot today and even now while she's sleeping, is it because she's teething or something I should be concerned?
Not necessarily: It is good to be observant and ready if anything comes up. However, babies have no social conscience and thus no inherent need to control their drool. They do a lot as babies but eventually decide to contain it. I see babies who never seem to "teethe" but end up with a full set. ...Read more
See a pediatrician: For evaluation, diagnosis and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more
My 16 week old is teething & drooling a lot and has had a stuffy nose/slight cough for 2 days. Could these be related?
No. Nasal congestion: & cough are symptoms of a viral upper respiratory illness. Teething does not cause fever, diarrhea or any other symptoms not related to the gums, although some babies have pain & irritability. Drooling at 4 months does not necessarily mean a baby is teething, just that the salivary glands are beginning to function. The central lower incisors usually erupt first, around 6 months. ...Read more
Could my 7 week old son be teething? Drooling a lot more than usual and been crying and fussy for 2 days, even mid-feed and chewing his hands.
Maybe, maybe not: Babies generally drool because they have no social conscience and make more slobber than they choose to swallow. It does increase with their mouthing and suckling activity. ...Read more

What is pre teething? Can teething symptoms appear in a 10 week old? We have chewing, drooling, rubbing her face in her sleep, not sleeping well, etc. With no fever.
Of course: Your teeth just don't pop out of you gums like pop tarts out of the toaster. They have to cut their way through virgin gums that have never been cut through before. Your adult teeth don't do this because a path is already there. However, when baby's first teeth are coming in, there are weeks if not months of cutting through those gums, which includes the drooling, fussy etc etc. ...Read more
When do preemies get their first tooth? I have a 28-weeker who is now 5.5 months (2.5 months adjusted) and she seems to be showing signs of teething (drooling, irritability, chewing/sucking on everything in reach, and not sleeping as much).
Perfectly normal: Some babies are born with at least 1 erupted tooth. Some don't get a tooth until 18 months. 6 months is a little early but well within normal limits. As soon as 1st tooth erupts, but no later than 1st b'day, take baby to pediatric dental specialist, a Pedodontist (for all the same reasons you see a Pediatrician for medical care) for exam, developmental analysis, oral hygiene instruction, etc. ...Read more
Good day. I have twin prem baby girls, 3 and half months old. Can they start teething so young? Signs are itchy gums, spit bubbles, drooling, chewing
Teething???: A babies lips and oral cavity are lined with pleasure sensing nerve endings that help promote interest in feeding. It is a survival feature. I would not assume that their chewing/mouthing of objects means anything more. Little babies drool because they have no social conscience that drives them to hold it in. ...Read more

Take him/her to a pediatric dental specialist, a Pedodontist, for initial exam, oral hygiene instructions, dentofacial growth & development evaluation, decay prevention advice, and so much more. ...Read more
