Can my son get a temperature from teething?

Can my son get a temperature from teething?

Depends: Depends upon whom you ask. Some people think that teething can cause a mild fever and some say it is merely a coincidence. It might be a cold that your child caught and is teething at the same time. Bottom line if your child is running a fever please use palliative measures to help your child feel better. Frozen teething rings, appropriate tylenol (acetaminophen) for age and weight and encourage fluids. ...Read more

How high can an infant's temperature go when teething?

How high can an infant's temperature go when teething?

Not very: I am not convinced infants actually develop fever when teething. They have so many minor viral illnesses between 6m-3y in the same time frame that there is sure to be overlap.If they do I would only accept up to 101. Any higher & I would want to look to some illness as a source. ...Read more

My 8 month baby has on and off rectal temperature of 100 F since a week, really worried, he is on teething?

Call Pediatrician: Teething gets blamed for a lot of things, including low grade fever, although there' slots of contradictory evidence. 100 F is more than low grade. It's your baby. You have every right to be concerned. Call your Pediatrician. ...Read more

My baby is 14 months and has a temperature of 39, he also doesn’t want to eat.Is this teething symptoms or should I take him to a dr?

Teething: A temperature over 38.5 is probably not attributable to teething. an appointment with a Pediatrician would be advisable. Also, it is recommended that ALL children have their 1st Dental Examination by their 1st b'day. See a Pediatric Dental Specialist (Pedodontist) for all the same reasons you have chosen a Pediatric Medical Specialist, a Pediatrician, rather than a GP. ...Read more

My 16 month old has a temperature of 100.7. She is teething. Could the temperature be just from teething?

My 16 month old has a temperature of 100.7. She is teething. Could the temperature be just from teething?

Possible: Research about teething has been very difficult to perform. Currently, research does not support that teething can cause high fever (> 102) but may cause low grade temperatures. Some believe that fever is caused not by teething but a viral infection that may be going on at the same time. If the fever is > 102, lasts longer than 3-5 days or she is very uncomfortable, I would have her checked out. ...Read more

My 14 month old son is running a low temperature, is notreally eating or drinking, but is acting normal. Could this just be teething?

My 3 year old son has a slight flu, cough and body heartiness. Temperature reading is 37.6 c and has teething discomfort. Should I be worried and what?

Teething: Not sure of hyland products, but a pacifier, ortho, should help due to positive pressure in the bite, and a refrigerated pacifier will ease the pain due the soothing effect of cold on pain due to the easing of inflammation. Softer food for the child will also help. No too warm food. If the child is acting especially uncomfortable with certain foods, use different. If fever persists, see pediatric. ...Read more

Does teething cause boils on the head? My 4 months old daughter has temperature on the head and boils as well

Teething rumors: Fevers, diarrhea, rashes and all sort of things have been attributed to teething, but no scientific evidence exists that teething causes anything other than pain and discomfort. Boils on the scalp of children are most likely due to bacterial or fungal infections. ...Read more

My 8 month old has 99.5 temperature on forehead, no other symptom, fussy not eating and vomits when eats food.he is also teething.

Too vague to answer: You try to make sure that he does not get dehydrated. If he is pushing you away then don't force him to eat. He may have a sore throat. You can try some paracetamol (10-15 mg/kg/dose every 4 hr. If he doesn't improve bring him to his doc. ...Read more

Always an option: Any kid can come in a day or 2 before their ear infection becomes clear, only to have the problem progress over 8-12 hours. If the kid is eating robustly and playful most of the time, a significant issue is less likely and a virus may be running its course. If the kid is off his/her activity pattern, drinking has fallen and your parent sense is telling you it's more, get back in to have a recheck. ...Read more

My 9 month old daughter was giving a flu shot a week ago, now she has fever.  Temperature was checked under arms, read 101. She's also teething. Help?

Fevers: Are generally suggestive of an active infection, and should not be attributed to teething. It is unlikely she has developed the fever as a result of the recent vaccination, so close monitoring for progression of symptoms would be wise. ...Read more

A little high: 100.9 is a little high. May be teething, but more probably a cold. Ck w pediatrician. And see a pediatric dentist no later than 1st b'day. 2 or 3 is late. You need to talk to pedodontist about care of baby teeth, diet, hygiene, growth and development of teeth and jaws, Fluoride (remember, permanent teeth are already forming), and so many other things. And your child & the dr can bond. ...Read more
