Teething is the process by which a baby's teeth begin to rub in the mouth. This condition can cause a variety of symptoms such as mild restlessness and fever.
Dentist Pertev Kökdemir gives tips on how to soothe teething discomfort, treat fever and when to see a doctor.
When the baby is 6-12 months old, while exploring his world, he sucks and chews various objects by putting something in his mouth. This exposes them to new pathogens. In other words, your child's fever may also be due to an infection that develops. The onset of this infection may coincide with the teething period.
Most babies start teething around 6 months old. However, some babies may start as early as 4 months, while others may start teething as late as 12 months.
Babies may show symptoms such as pain, crying, and restlessness while teething. In addition to these, if there are symptoms such as severe vomiting, skin rash, diarrhea that are not actually related to teething, this is probably due to infection. In such a situation, you should take your baby to the pediatrician.
