All children are different and some children may have more problems with teething than others. Discomfort from teething may be helped by providing them with frozen wash clothes, a chilled teething ring, rubbing the gums, or children’s Tylenol. Teething may lower your child’s resistance and make him more susceptible to other minor health problems. Severe discomfort, fever, nasal discharge, etc. should be a signal to see your physician.
