Can Teething Cause A Runny Nose?

Sleepless nights, my baby just wants to be held, loss of appetite, fever, runny nose and fussiness are just some of things we blame on teething but according to the Seattle Children Hospital, teething does not cause "cold" like symptoms such as: fever, runny nose or diarrhea.

Experts believe there is a indirect link that causes stress to the child when they are teething that leaves them vulnerable to infections which can cause the "cold" like symptoms.

When a child starts teething usually between the ages of 6-30 months, their immune system is changing so they become more exposed to illnesses.

If your child has a fever of 100.4 *F dont assume its from them teething, this is a sign that something else is going on.
