DS had a pretty bad couple days recently. He has been CRANKY. Had tantrums for no reason (not like him at all). He's super clingy, he went from nursing 2 minutes twice a day to 20 minutes 4 times a day. He's chewing on his fingers like he's trying to bite them off, to the point where they are covered in blisters and the skin is breaking. He's drooling like mad and his eczema around his mouth came back. He hasn't used a paci in almost a year, but now he's turning everything into a pacifier (like the rubber part of the medicine dropper) He had a low grade fever yesterday. However, he doesnt look sick. No rash, no ear pulling, etc. I gave in and gave him tylenol this afternoon and while he wasn't 100% back to normal, he was much better, so im assuming he's in pain.
I checked in his mouth and don't see anything coming out, but the lower left gum, at the very back, is sort of swollen.
Can this be his 2 year molars starting already? He did teeth on the early side for all his other teeth, he had 15 by the time he turned 1.
