Dentist 's  Response
Usually diarrhea ,fever,loss of apetite is usually associated with teething in child.
Since you baby has got already 4 teeth erupted,we cannot predict the cause as teething .
To prevent dehydration,plenty of fluids and ORS solution can be given.
Please discontinue giving the type of food which your child dislikes.
also CONSULT A physician as well as dentist regarding this.
Breast milk has to be given frequently.
Take care.
