She also seems to be teething becoz her gums are swollen and she makes a funy noise as if she is itchy in the mouth but she has developed a rash around her chin, neck and 2day its on the back of her shoulders and a bit on her chest.Should i be worried?

Try a rice or maize cereal at night. If she goes through the night without taking any cereal then the milk is filling her enough for the moment. She seems to have developed a candida rash on her neck and chin. Try Nystatin cream 3 times a day and if the rash does not clear in 3 or 4 days please have her seen by her doctor.
