Though slight discomfort during teething is normal, in some children painful teething is a reason to worry about. Such kids tend to have extreme pain in their gums, which makes them cranky and grumpy. Teething pain includes discomfort in the gums followed with itchiness and irritation too. Such children could have loose motions and stools too.
HOW IS PAINFUL TEETHING DIAGNOSED?
Teething infants often feel better when gentle pressure is placed on their gums. One can gently rub the gums with a clean finger or having the child bite down on a clean washcloth. Cold objects many help reduce inflammation.
HOW IS PAINFUL TEETHING TREATED?
The teething process can be treated by soothing the baby with the painful teeth in his mouth. Use a clean finger (or cold teething ring) to gently rub your baby's gum for about 2 minutes at a time. Many babies find this soothing, although they may protest at first. The doctor may prescribe over the counter painkillers to help the baby with the pain. Providing cool things to chew on is another effective way to treat teething.
DID YOU KNOW?
Teething babies love to feel pressure on their gums because it helps distract their brain from the sensation of teething pain. Some parents swear by homeopathic teething drops and tablets.
