Has anyone ever experience swelling on the outside of a 2 yr olds face while teething?

Addison has had a low grade fever off and on and been complaining of pain on her face. Right in front of her ear lobe, around her jaw line, is slightly swollen. Does this sound like teething or time for a doctor visit?

  • Head for the doctor - that's not normal. I've got 4 kids who are all past 2, and none of them ever swelled up along with teething. Shoot, they barely ran a temp or anything - my youngest got all 4 2-yr molars at once and I had no clue til he opened wide and I could see them! If you can't actually go in, at least call and ask a nurse.
