yes, teething changes the ph of the saliva and definitely causes diaper rash. When my ds's bottom looks like a monkey in the zoo, I use Hyland's diaper ointment to create a barrier between diaper changes, put him in the tub with some baking soda in the water, and let him run around naked for a while.
My kids have also had hives and run fevers when teething. Teething is a bigger deal to a little body than it's made out to be.
