A cool washcloth to the head, ask your doctor if you want to give baby advil or baby tylenol. I used water filled teethers that you put in the fridge. They seemed to help with the tooth pain. Baby anbesol to numb as well.

 this...also don't ever let some brain dead doctor tell you that it's not from teething, my oldest was teething and had these issues as well and her doctor tried to tell me it was something else because babies don't get sick when teething...I was like WHAT??? yes they do!!!! Sometimes she enjoyed a bath, not too cool cause then she'll end up with cold chills. Good luck momma!

Freeze a wet washcloth & let her gum on that. My daughter loved her mesh feeder. I would pop an apple slice into it & let her go to town on it. That was one of the only ways I could get her to eat when she was teething at that age.

Don't use baby orajel. It hardens the guns, making it more painful. Best bet is to use baby tylenol and if that doesn't work, alternate it with baby ibuprofen.

 A high fever is more than just teething. She needs to see a doctor. A slight fever it can be due to teething.

Freeze a wet wash cloth and let her chew on it!

Also, babies DO get sick from teething! My baby brothers would get ear infections every single time they were cutting teeth.
