I was told their boby temp might increase slightly, but still within normal range...If it is over 37.5 deg. then it's a fever from being sick - not teething

They get a fever or vomit while teething cause that is how the body copes with the pain

i always thought it was because the body recognized that it was in pain and was trying to figure out the source of it so a fever developed to try and kill whatever was causing it ... i have also had someone tell me that they have nothing to do with one another, but my kids always had a fever when they were getting teeth
