Is a fever normal with a first tooth?
Q: My 6-month old son has just gotten his first tooth. With it has come a fever and rash on his face. Is this normal, or should I take him to the doctor?
A: Some people have reported facial rashes and fevers when a child gets his first tooth, but I would call the pediatrician, as these conditions could be symptoms of an illness.
