Is Babyrex or Piccan a medicine for teething?
  • Best Answer
According to my consultant paediatricians, using Piccan, babyrex or Bonabebe for baby is not acceptable because it has a long-term effect which is terrible for my baby. They all contain paracetamol. You don't need to use either Piccan or Bonabebe. Like my Paediatrician said, Teething a natural phenomenon just like height. if your baby is having a fever or high temperature, then the baby is sick and should be taken to the hospital. Don't use any teething mixtures, if you're using any teething mixtures, please discontinue it immediately and see a doctor

I understand that VSD is a hole in the wall separating the two lower chambers of the heart.
