What helps with teething pain?

We used teething rings, as many have suggested, but another thing that seemed to work was letting my son chew on his socks. Since he wasn't walking yet, his feet weren't dirty, and he always got so excited about being able to pull off his socks and then chew on them! It helped with his pain and distracted him at the same time. Kind of like a puppy with a chew toy. Maybe letting your child chew on something soft and safe?

I mean ponstan is for adults not for children. For children teething pain should be easily relieved with oral gel, which gives a localized effect. But if pain persists, a dentist may examine the child mouth if there is swelling, which in that case, a sign of infection. A course of antibiotic may be prescribed by a doctor.An anti-inflammatory syrup, a symptomatic treatment may be prescribed by the doctor.This syrup may contain mild sedative. That sedative effect (induces the child to sleep) helps the child forget the toothpain for at least a few hours, and meanwhile the antibiotic takes effect on the bacteria (which cause the infection and the swelling).

I have a daughter that is 11 months old and is teething like crazy right now. for her we use Infant Tylenol and we also use Hyland's Teething tablets. They are made with all natural ingredients and they are awesome. We also give her teething rings, and baby mum mum cookies to help as well.
