Iron, hmmm, I can't imagine where he might have gotten too much iron from. I don't even use cast iron though I am looking into starting that now, since I'm low in iron.
He's never had Cipro though he had one round of Amoxicillin (for an eye infection) when he was 2, to which he got hives, gave him benadryl and won't ever give it to him again.
Fluoride...hmmm....we have never had fluoridated water though he has usually used fluoridated toothpaste, but not always (and not right now). His teeth have never received a fluoride treatment. Is that enough to cause it? I have seen people have white spots on their teeth from too much fluoride, I'd never heard that fluoride could also turn them yellow.
Is this something that can be fixed naturally?
In the future, if he wanted his teeth whitened, is tooth whitening safe?
Ah, so many questions, so little time. Thank you for your response.
