  • wipe it off and put a little vasaline on the rashy part, it will creat a barrier against the drool

  • You can put lotion on his chin and face. You can also give him a frozen ravilo to chew on it will help his gums feel better. I know it sound funny and weird but it works great for little ones teething.

  • My son is doing the same thing. Two top teeth the poor baby has been trying to cut them for almost two months now and all he does is cry.. He even cries in his sleep.. His face was a mess so when his wellness appointment came up I asked my doctor and she said to put Eucerin cream on his face and neck and boy did it work. No more red bumps and his face is so clear.. I'm sure vasaline would work too though since it seems to have the same texture as the Eucerin so either one will work.. Good luck...

  • pout powder on his neck to help keep it dryer, and keep a bid on him
