Hi Doc

What would you suggest I use for my almost 5 month old baby. Im not sure if his teething but his hands are constantly in his mouth and drooling at most times. I was advised bongela (he doesnt like the taste), vidal &  ponstel. Many thanks

You don't need to use anything if your baby is happy and does not seem to be in pain while teething. If he does appear to be uncomfortable and in pain apply a little Pansoral gel to his lower gums as needed.

Hi I use Pansorol Gel and it works like a charm. My baby is turning 1 year on the 14th and his teeting has never been that big an issue.

If you try it, hope it helps your little one as well.

take care
