“My DS has a pimple like rash all over his body, mainly on his legs and back and some isolated spots on his tummy arms etc. It looks like small raised red lumps. some have a white center others dont.
The Dr says that they are from teething. I have never heard of this before. I am aware that they can get dribble rash on their mouth and face from teething, but all over the body? Has anyone else experienced this with their bubs when teething? And what did the rash look like.”

“Both of my DS’s got a rash with teething. I took them to the Dr to be safe but she said that the rash was more than likely a heat rash due to the high temperature they had. If you are worried then talk to you Dr about it.”

” Well the spots are definitely worse today  The doctor yesterday said it was viral rash… she said now that he has spots its not contagious… DS is totally miserable but I don’t think he’s itchy just teething. Come on tooth!!!”
