  • POOR THING....THERE IS NOT REALLY MUCH YOU CAN DO. THEY DO SELL OVER THE COUNTER ORA-GEL FOR TEETHING FOR CHILDREN. MAYBE THAT WILL HELP A LITTLE.

  • Teething tablets may still work for her. Try popsicles. Watch here fluid intake though-loose stools can cause dehydration.

  • Popsicles, good to crunch and naw on. Also at Wal-Mart or Target you can find these mesh things attatched to a ring like handle. Used for toddlers to put in apples and other items to chew on. They work really well, are in expensive, and you can put in frozen bananna or frozen strawberries, ect...for your child. Also If you are willing to take homeopath tablets found in the drug store for teething. No side effects, perfectly safe (you can ask your phamacist), and all natural. I have friends who have sworn by them. Didn't do a darn thing for my son. But it has worked for some.

  • I would call your dentist, that doesn't sound right for a 5 1/2 year old with molars.. they would hurt but not cause a fever and loose stools...

  • Pineapple (unless allergic) the enzyme bromelain (sp?) helps the mouth heal. Another option which is really good is Dr. Hylands brand of teething tablets. As mentioned above frozen foods (waffles, bananas, etc.) are nice to munch on too.
