Teeth powders - any without lactose base?

I'm not entirely sure, but I think my DS (24wks) is having a bad reaction to the Ashton and Parsons powders. I'm wondering if it's down to the lactose base. He has a runny nose and gets sick within about 15 minutes of having half a dose. Could he be intolerant?

I'd really rather not have to give him Calpol every night and Bonjela alone doesn't seem to do it. Had to give him Calpol mid-day today as well.

Anyone know of a teeth powder without lactose or any other herbal/homeopathic remedies I could try?

I've used these but you'd have to double check the lactose, although they say sugar free so I presume it would be ok? Hope this helps

Both Nelsons and Boots own have lactose. Don't know about any others. There is no harm in the calpol at hte right dose and interval.

Thanks for that. Investigated at the chemist and they suggested going to a homeopathic chemist/shop to see if there was more to choose from. Guess I just prefer to try natural methods before medication, but poor chap is pretty miserable, so will carry on with Calpol/Nurofen until I find an alternative.

Baby Orajel is amazing, was suggested by someone on here and it really works.

Don't think it contains fructose but don't quote me!
