  • Is the rash just around his mouth? If so, it could just be from the drool. If it is all over his face, then I don't think it has anything to do with teething.

  • For the teething, Hylands teething tabs and frozen damp washcloths; also, let him nurse as often as he wants.
    The rash my be excema; try to keep it dry, and put coconut oil on it. A&D is made from petroleum, and if it is on his face he will eat it.
