My 5 month old has one red cheek, I think she might be teething? She is very fussy and dribbling alot also hands in the mouth all the time. My first baby

You may very well be right. It's hard to tell dor first time mom's (even ones who have other kids too).From the symptoms you have described it really soundsblike she is. One way to check for sure is to feel her gums, they will be swollen if she indeed is teething. I've found the best thing that works are Teething Tablets that I bought at Walmart and the Oragel Teething gel along with tylenol and motrin. It works best for baby if you alternate the tylenol and motrin. Baby will sleep better at night if you put Nighttime Oragel on her gums and give her motrin. Best of luck ;-)
