It’s not uncommon for child to have what is called a teething allergy – ie a rash that only occurs during an acute teething phase. A possibility one of the most common dental symptoms, but it is a symptom that occurs.
The most common treatment with this can be with the use of zinc preparations or cortisone. Parents are becoming increasing worried for their child’s future health and the likely impacts that can result after the use of such medication.
You can either seek the services of a professional homeopath, or you can try to work out the correct medicine yourself. This may take you a while, so don’t attempt it if you feel unsure.
One of the best homeopathic medicines for just about any progress phase is Calcarea carbonica (Calc carb). But your child’s symptoms need to fit those of the medicine, for it to operate.
Apart from the Teething Rash, if you possibly can match another two strong symptoms in the above list, to your child, then Calc carb is likely to be a great match for your child.
The age at which the first tooth appears differs from child to child. The complete set of 20 primary the teeth (baby teeth) is usually present by age two-and-a-half years. The first long lasting teeth appear at around six years of age. Myths about teething – Many things have been related to teething: rashes, crying, bad temper, nasal noses, extra dirty nappies, etc. Nothing of this can be proven, particularly as so many other things which may influence behaviour are happening in the child’s life at the same time. The important thing is never to use dental to explain away what might function as the signs of illness.
Start brushing as soon as teeth seem. Brush thoroughly twice a day (just before mattress is important). Help your child brush until they are able to do it well by themselves – usually around the age of seven. Use a fluoride toothpaste and encourage your child to spit after brushing; do not rinse afterwards as this reduces the benefits of the fluoride in the toothpaste.
Use a tiny smear of toothpaste for babies and a pea-sized amount for youngsters. Younger children will swallow the toothpaste; by using a child’s tooth paste with reduced fluoride until they are able to spit well. Go to a dental practitioner regularly to get your child used to the surgery. Dr Gill also told us that adult toothpastes should never be used to clean children teeth under the era of six.
As soon as you see a tooth you need to get some fluoride toothpaste on it. It normally happens around six months. Use a tiny smear of tooth paste on your finger and rub it onto the tooth. The flouride strengthens the tooth. You should not use an adult toothpaste before the age of six years old. The adult toothpaste has too much flouride and when babies are very young they don’t learn how to spit out properly. You can overdose on flouride it will effect the way the other teeth form and look. If they have too much flouride they can come through with orange or brown on them.
