teething question

Okay we have our 2 bottom teeth. Now we have a runny nose and she hasn't been exposed to anyone other than myself and daddy and we haven't been sick. So my question is can cutting the upper teeth cause a runny nose? I thought that it might but really wasn't sure.

  • My six month old was having a runny nose and a slight fever and was pulling on her ears, so I took her to the doctor thinking that she was sick. The doctor checked her out and said that it was all caused from teething. Giving her tylenol when her symptoms were really bad is the only thing that you can really do. They get really fussy and pull on there ears cuz they dont know where the pain is coming from. I give my daughter teething rings that you put in the fridge she really likes those and teething tables (these are a life saver) you just hold them under there tongue while they dissolve and they help put a damper on the pain. She also really like a set a teething keys that she can bit on.
