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

Is it medically possible to determine an exact year a person loss their teeth. and is their a test that can determine if the loss was drug related.
Exact year, No.: By looking on a radiographic image (x-ray) to see how the bone at the extraction site has healed a dentist could probably tell you of the extraction was within the last few months, the last 2-3 years, or a longer time ago.

It can be used as directed or through prescription of your dentist. If you need some added analgesic powers, take some tylenol (acetaminophen) with it to boost the intensity.
