Q.

Teething??????

Good afternoon, my daughter is now 23 months &  still teething, its only her eye teeth that still need to come out. Since Monday she has been on &  off with fever, tummy cramps, rubbing her ears. I have been giving her meds for fever &  cramps. She is drinking and nibbling on her food. She is fine during the day but fever starts at 1 - 3 in the morning. Is it the teething or should i tke her to the doctor

Although you say that your daughter is still teething, her symptoms are not due to teething. She appears to have an ear infection and should be seen by a doctor.
