Are runny noses associated with teething???

My daughter sounds congested, again, and last month she was congested when she cut her first tooth, could she be getting another tooth soon?? i thought i read somewhere that teething and runny noses were linked but i don't remember...and she doesnt have a fever and she didn't have one last time so i dont think she's sick... any thoughts??

My son always got a clear runny nose, a cough, and diarrhea when he was teething!

My daughter gets a runny nose and cold symptoms when she teeths also. It really depends on who you ask. Some pediatricians will say no it is not a symptom, and others say definitely it is. Chances are, if her nose is running clear mucous, it probably is from teething. Colored mucous indicates a cold.

My daughter also gets a rash on her body, gets really cranky and uncomfortable. One month she got 5 teeth. She was miserable. I helped her with Motrin, and teething items.
