We haven't experienced a fever with loosing teeth.
Usually loosing teeth in our house can take up to a week before they actually come out. No pulling allowed...they basically let them fall out!
Does your DS have a fever the entire time?
Mama to DD#1 2001 , DD#2 2002 , , & . Me & my man June 2014.
Dd just lost a tooth yesterday. We first discovered that the tooth was loose back last December during our holiday dinner. It took that long to lose it - almost 6 months. She had a couple of low-grade fevers in the meantime.
When you say "fever when losing", do you mean the very day it comes out? Because it's such a long, long process with dd that I can't even imagine being able to pinpoint even a given week or probably month when she's "losing" a tooth.
She's 8 and just lost her 4th tooth, so we're kind of behind on the teeth-losing front.
To clarify, for example this last time, he had a 101F fever for about two-three days before the tooth actually came out though it had been very loose for a couple of weeks. It came out in the evening and in the morning the fever was gone.
could he be getting a fever as his 6 year molars are coming in? I am not sure if that is something that happens or not.
Good point. OP - I'm wondering if this is just coincidental to erupting molars. Dd would get these random fevers, but not feel bad. Sure enough, a few days later I'd notice she would have a new molar breaking through.
