It sounds as if your baby has a cold or other virus infection rather than this illness being due to teething. The main thing you should do is make sure that his nose is clear. So put a drop of Salex nose drops in each of his nostrils twice a day. If he has a fever you can use Panado for babies or Calpol syrup.If his stools become more watery it would be best to ask your doctor to see him.
