If your baby refuses to cooperate run your clean fingers to feel if there are any swollen areas. If he is in fact teething, massaging over the gums can help relieve pain.
Teething is almost always accompanied by excessive drooling. While babies start to produce lots of saliva around this age to increase digestive power.
Some babies get rashes all over their mouth, cheeks, and even diaper area. Keeping the mouth and cheeks dry from drool can help prevent rashes.
