Any teething gel/powder is worth a try. I cannot comment on the pigment abnormality without seeing it, but only time will tell.

I would definitely give her something for her gums. Put a little bit of tee jel on them (it does contain alcohol though), give her a teething ring to chew on (the ones cooled in the fridge seems to provide the most relief), chewing on a face cloth also helps.

I tied an ice cube into a face cloth and my son found this a brilliant teething ring.
