What is the best infants medicine for fever from teething?

I've tried Tylenol, but is that the best or is there something that works better? He's not really fevering bad, it's 99.6..Just a little high..He seems to be in pain though.

  • AWW ur poor little one. My daughter likes the tyenol and it seemed to work for her, you could also try ora gel and give em as much squeeshy toys to naw on... try a wet wash cloth rung out that works too! Good Luck.

  • Definitely Tylenol. It's meant for fever reducer, and it relieves pain in the mean time. It saves our sanity! Motrin only reduces the swelling in my son's gums, but he still fusses, and his fever barely goes down on it.

  • Tylenol, then instead of the next dose being Tylenol again, make it Motrin, then Tylenol, etc.

  • I'd say tylenol. But what I used most is teething tabs. They're wonderful. One for an infant and up to three for a toddler. That's what has always worked best for me. Good luck!

  • Actually, teething causing a fever is false. I would not give tylenol or motrin and let your little one fight off whatever she/he may be trying to catch. I

  • Tylenol and definitely orajel to put on her gums. If your nursing..that helps also.

  • Both tylenol and motrin are good. If it's bad, you can stack them, like someone else said, tylenol-motrin... few hours later, tylenol... few hours after that, motrin etc.,
