Moms and dads know what agony it is when I begin to erupt teeth in babies. Often this process is accompanied by very unpleasant, and sometimes painful sensations: children do not sleep well, are capricious, cry, and their parents are worried.
When the first teeth erupt, there is usually increased salivation. In addition, appetite worsens, gums swell, the child becomes irritable, restless. The pain itself arises directly from the rupture of soft tissues - the gums. This painful process for the baby takes several days.
To somehow reduce the suffering of the child, use local anesthetics - gels and ointments for teething. The composition of gels usually includes components such as chamomile extract, lidocaine, lauromacrogol, which have a cooling and analgesic effect, relieve the condition of the child. But such drugs should only be used as directed by a doctor.
It will help relieve pain during teething in a child "Kalgel". It quickly relieves pain, but also helps get rid of germs. It contains the antiseptic cetylpyridinium chloride and lidocaine. Use it on babies over five months old.
Apply the medication to your finger and rub gently into the gum. If necessary, the gel can be reapplied after 20 minutes. The maximum amount of gel application is up to 6 times a day.

You can also apply Kamistad gel. It lingers well on the gums. But there is one drawback - the use is not recommended for children under 12 years old. And in general, it is better to save it in case of stomatitis at an older age. Although sometimes doctors prescribe drugs with such restrictions and small children, but in a lower dosage.

Gel "Dentol" begins to act almost a minute after application. The drug does not have a negative effect on the body, but its action time is only 20 minutes. It can be used from 4 months and no more than 7 times a day. The benzocaine contained in the composition is non-toxic. The gel may be contraindicated in case of individual intolerance.

The stronger the remedy, the greater the negative effect on the body. Be sure to consult a doctor before use, as children may have individual reactions to the components of the gels.
