Do Teething Babies Need Medicine on Their Gums? No


(Music) Teething Baby? Don’t use over-the-counter products containing
benzocaine to treat teething. It can have a dangerous side effect, methemoglobinemia, a life-threatening condition that reduces oxygen carried in blood. Homeopathic teething products also present
serious health risks to infants and children and should not be used. Instead, gently rub or massage the gums with
your finger. Or, give your child a firm rubber teething
ring-not frozen. So your teething baby, and you, can get some
sleep! (Music)
