dd 18mth has been grizzly all day, tonight has woken up crying, i thought she is getting a cold, but she doesnt seem to have a temp, yet her right cheek is red and hot. stupid question i know but do you think it could be her back molar coming through? is it normally bout 18mth they get them ?(she only has 4 back molars and 2 fangs to get now)

They are normally referred to as '2 year molars', so they could well be coming through a bit early.

my ds has been getting his back molars over past 2mths and he is 21mths. he has 2 of them through now and the other 2 just under

lilsmum Thu 21-Jul-05 23:19:03 your ds suffering with getting these molars?

my dd has had virtually no probs getting any teeth (up to now) but just find it odd, that only one side of her cheek is flushed/hot.

not really as bad but then with his other teeth he was horrendous throwing up a lot and had temp/ was whiney with pain. This time he has been a little off sorts but not too bad which surprised me to find the molars just b4 they broke through

ds always gets the bright red cheeks and they do come through on both sides at exactly the same time. Mauybe just one of them is coming for your dd
