My son is 16 months old and has teeth coming through. He's had Calpol for other teeth but these seem worse. I was wondering if there is anything else I can give him to help
Assistant: Have you noticed any swelling in the gums? When was your last visit to the dentist?
Customer: There is no swelling but his cheeks look like he's been slapped. I haven't taken him to the dentist yet. He seems a bit young and I think he'd probably bite them
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Thanks for the reply.

Massage his gums, give him something cold to chew especially before bed time, Give Calpol and Ibuprofen alternating with each other every 8 hourly when he is very irritable. Try gripe water as well.
