Teething is a normal part of the developmental process. We’ve all been through it. It is painful and your child can have sore and tender gums from it. Pain usually occurs between 4 months and 3 years of age. The discomfort can be soothed by gently rubbing the gums with a finger, cool wet gauze or a teething ring, which has been placed in the freezer. New teeth coming in does not cause fever. If your child’s temperature becomes elevated it should be addressed as a separate medical issue. You need to contact your pediatrician or family doctor.
