  • It sounds like you are doing about all you can do. Hopefully the tooth will come through soon, and he will be relieved. And you will too! We used Hylands teething tablets when my son's teething became uncomfortable. They are all natural tablets that my hygenist suggested. They helped a lot. You can buy them at the drug store or health food store. I just would not mix them with other meds. Good luck!
