Son’s teeth and fever

I hope you will share!

We have been in vacation since June 18 and when we left my son only had 3 teeth. He has 6 now and the last 2 can in one after another over a 2 day period. He now has a 7th one pushing through. I feel so bad for him, he is so miserable and his little mouth is so sore.

We have also been battling a huge fever of 101-102 today and tonight. The thing is that he does not have any other sick symptoms. He is still eating bottles and letting me use a straw to dap water in his mouth. He is not squirming around like his body aches or anything. His fever is just so high. We have been alternating Motrin-Ibuprofen and Tylenol every 4 hours in hopes this cuts it. I also had my Dad give him a blessing (prayer) in hopes this fever breaks. He is so hot and so miserable.

I know that the emergency room won’t do anything for him so I have not taken him. I called, but they can no longer give advice over the phone. If he was not eating or drinking and had other sick symptoms I would have been out the door hours ago.

Could this all be from teething? Any incite please!

  1. My youngest used to do this every year for a week and until this year had no other symptoms (this year her tonsils were inflamed too). The fever always responded to motrin (not usually to tylenol) but would pop right back up when the meds wore off.

    I kept her hydrated with popsicles. You might want to look into a rapid strep test if the back of his throat looks red.
