    Can baby teething cause high fever?

    Baby's immune system is weakened when they start teething.

    Yes it can among other side effects. Both of my boys spiked over 100 degree temps when they were teething, but it's always better to be safe then sorry. We always called the pediatrician just to verify what we should watch for. Sometimes they would get rashes or even hives and always moody.

    I don't have any children, as I am not married yet, but I do have siblings.  However, I don't know much about this.
