Q:

hello.. are small rashes on face a sign of emerging teeth.. if yes.. how soon can I expect my baby to get his first tooth..



Roopashree Siddireddy

Not exactly. If baby is teething..they will try to bite or keep fingers there. In doing so...they will salivate a lot. If their saliva is all over there face and not cleaned immediately.. rashes are possible. There is no direct connection with teething a Nd rashes. Better check with your doctor as well.

Nisha Lobo

yes.. he is constantly drooling.. non stop.. and wants to bite each and everything..

Roopashree Siddireddy

rashes is due to drooling. Give him some vegetables sticks....like raw carrot, soft beans to chew. orelse so teethers. wipe mouth immediately... as he is drooling too much... apply some coconut oil. He will be fine

Nisha Lobo

wher shud I apply coconut oil..

Roopashree Siddireddy

around his mouth... to retain moisture and saliva will slip n fall.

Nisha Lobo

Roopashree Siddireddy

yes you can. Always clean it every now and then.
