High Grade Fevers and Teething

Next Time Babe Has a Fever, Don't Blame His Teeth

Two weeks ago, my daughter had a fever for three days. I wondered if she was just teething.

According to the New York Times, I might have been barking up the wrong tree. In two separate studies, the same conclusion was reached:

There was no link between teething and body temperature or high fever. (104 or higher.)

While teething can sometimes cause an increase in body temperature, high grade fevers are often signs of something more concerning.
