Q.

Teething rash and fever?

I have a 10 months old son. His 5th &  6th teeth are coming out. He has fever, skin-rash all over his body and face and he keeps crying. This has been going on for a week. Should I consult?

This is not due to teething. Your baby probably has an illness called Roseola or 'baby measles'. If he still has a fever tomorrow and the rash is still present he should be seen by a doctor.
