Recently, I am having headche in front of my forehead and above my head and its associated with teeth pain. I don't sleep well from my new infant. Help?

This type of pain tends to be present more often with stress, like getting lack of sleep or other of life's pressures. An endodontist might be hepful in evaluating the teeth to rule out a source there. He might be able to provide a referral to a medical doctor, too. ...Read more

Infant had fever about 2 days up to 102.7 finally broke on day 2 but now has rash on head chest back and cries almost constantly?

Common patters: A lot of infant viral infections will have fever for a few days and end in a generalized rash. Some have names based on location and type of rash, but they are expected and rather benign. I'd consider the crying evidence it is not finished. As long as the kid takes fluids well and plays occasionally you can monitor at home. If not drinking the kid should be seen. ...Read more

Baby has red lumpy cheek, could it be from teething?

Baby has red lumpy cheek, could it be from teething?

Not usually: Teething does not cause "lumpy cheeks". If they are drooling a lot from teething they may get a drool rash on their cheeks and neck but that is it. Most people would describe this as a mild rash, not as "lumpy". If this is what you meant, then it is normal and will resolve when drooling stops. If questionable then have an exam by a pediatric dentist. They will be able to tell you if this is normal. ...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

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

Red rashes on the face and head only of 11 month old baby boy after sun exposure on the beach temporal temperature is 36.6 and very alert pls. Advise.

Sounds like sunburn: A baby gets sunburn very easily. Even on a cloudy day, it is possible to get a sunburn, because uv light penetrates through clouds. I would strongly recommend to keep babies in a shade, not directly expose to any sunlight. A baby gets sunstroke more easily than older children as well. ...Read more

Should I worry that my baby's rash is spreading from her cheek downward to her arms and legs?

Should I worry that my baby's rash is spreading from her cheek downward to her arms and legs?

No: Rashes are fun - and the vast majority of rashes in newborns are not worrisome. A rash would be infectiously spreading if it moved between contiguous areas - and the legs don't come into contact with the (facial)cheeks. While there are viral infections that can cause what you're describing, you best answer will come from a medical provider who can see your baby's rash: time to make an appointment. ...Read more
