I have been using Bonjela teething gel for some time with my daughter so was really surprised to get a bad reaction when I tried it with my son. As far as I can see there are no ingredients that should cause any type of reaction, however, Russell clearly doesn’t tolerate it. He was experiencing some teething pain so we gave a very small amount of gel. Almost immediately he became very red and screamed for a couple of hours as though in lots of pain. I can’t find any reason for the reaction of even anyone who has experienced similar. If you have found this article because your child had a similar reaction, please leave me a comment.
