Q.

Teething

My 2 year old son seems to be developing a molar tooth &  is in pain  the gum on the area is very tender. I gave him Panado &  Ponstan (Sp??) since last night &  I' m wondering how safe it would be to give him the pain meds regularly until the tooth comes out. He won' t even let me put my finger in so that I can rub teejel or something on the gum.

You should try again to apply a soothing gel to his gums. Use Panado for pain and discomfort.
