Pardon my ignorance but as I'm reading the instructions it says to put it over the affected area
Where exactly is the "affected area". My baby has only two lower teeth I do not see any other teeth coming out but he is teething for sure because he keeps chewing his teether and drooling. Where should I apply the gel (orajel).

  • I guess just rub it over their gums...I use the homeopathic teething tablets and I just rub it over as much gums as I can and it seems to help.

  • I bought the night time orajel. This is the first time I'm using it I'm not a huge fan of baby products so I will used with moderation.

  • I just put it on my finger and then rub my finger on his bottom and top gums. You just want to be careful about using to much because it can numb there gag reflex and cause choking so less than the size of a pea is what I use
