Is it normal for a baby's chin to turn red while teething?

Yeah there's a bit of a bump on the left side and a bump in the middle on the bottom. Thanks.

Also, I just looked at how old she was (sorry wasn't being a creeper) but she's right at that age where she may start teething. That's about when my son started drooling and chewing on his hands and fingers (actually even earlier than that) and both of his bottom teeth popped up. One on his 4 month birthday and the other the next day!

What if you feel her gums? Is there a bit of a bump on the front bottom gum (where teeth usually come in first)?

I'm not so much worried about getting rid of it as I am worried if she is actually teething. Her cheeks have been getting periodically red and she's been drooling alot more than usual, and when he cheeks and chin get red she cries alot. But her gums don't look swollen to me, nor do they look red or painful.

children tend to dribble more when they are teething so their chin can be effected, they quite often get rosy cheeks aswell but maybe your child is having a rosy chin instead. if you think it's because of the dribbling you could put a little vaseline - patrolium jelly - on it but avoid anything stronger it will go away quite quickly.
