My son just turned 6 months old he has a fever of 101.1 and a horribly runny nose.. my first thought was cold cause his dad has a runny nose too but no fever, but then i found out that these are also symptoms of teething.. but he doesnt seem to be in pain and i cant tell if hes drooling any more then usual cause hes always drooled a ridiculous amount and hes always tried to naw on everything he can get his hands on.. i guess he is a bit more grouchy then usual.. how can i tell the difference?

If the runny nose mucus is clear then it is teething. If it is cloudy or greenish then it is definitely a cold.
