Pediatrician 's  Response

Please have your baby seen by your Pediatrician.

High grade fever can not happen due to teething. And refusal to solids will be seen due to teething, but not refusal to liquids.

Since she has cough, cold too along with fever and food refusal, she has to be seen immediately by a Pediatrician, examined completely and treated accordingly.

Hope my answer helps you.
Wish your son a speedy recovery.

Pediatrician Dr. Synthyia Bhagat's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Since your baby is having high grade irritable and is refusing feeds as i suggest you to get him examined by pediatrician to rule out any infection and manage accordingly.
He may need basic test as CBC.
In the meantime continue with paracetamol every 6 hourly,do sponging with tepid water.
Try to give him fluids.

For teething you can massage his gums gently 2 to 3 time a day.
You can rub ice cubes over gums.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless
