A large cold peeled carrot has always been used in our house for little teethers. and A bottle of gin Calpol in the fridge just incase.

We usually do any or a mix of the following:

Nurofen (but only when really bad) followed by
Ashtons powder (in Boots)
This teether:

which also has a little nodule in the top for putting Bonjela in and sometimes we freeze the teether for 10 mins first
Bonjela (stored in fridge)
Anbesol liquid (antiseptic and anesthetic actions, behind the counter in Boots)
Cuddles

Good luck!

Brill. Thanks for the suggestions, have only tried cuddles so far but not quite doing the trick!

Off to the shops for all of the above!
