  • Yes. usually it's low grade (less than 100 degrees) If it gets higher, watch for other symptoms.

  • Teething can produce a mild fever as a result of inflammation caused by the pressure of the teeth against the soft gums, but it rarely causes a fever of more than 101° F.

  • Yes it can, my son is one of those kids that get high fever from teething (103 was not unusual for him) but most kids get low fevers.
