I give Panadol when the pain seems bad and regularly put on Bonjela - just yesterday baught a gummy (recommended by a mum on this site) which I put in the fridge - anything cool seems to help also any hard teething toys.
It is not fun and is hard to see them in pain, it can go on for quite a while - my older child didnt seem as bad but both do the drooling thing.
I guess we can but try to get thru the stage...good luck

I didn't use any panadol back then, opting for a little bonjella and a massge of her gums.
She is much worse now as has two big molars moving up the top. I have used panadol (as per directions on the packet) but at times it doesn't make a difference.
We have a few rough nights then it seems to settle down again. I keep trying all the normal settling stuff, feed, bath, walk, drive, cuddle (etc) until some-thing works. I always make sure she has some thing to chew on as it comforts her and helps the teethies push through.
From all accounts it seems that teething is one of the worst times. Its frustrating for us as parents as we're use to a really good little girl, but she can crank up when teething.
Best of luck !
DD is 3yr 8 months - DS is 6 months
he is now almost 9months and has 8 teeth which he has had since he was 7months old i found the best teething solution why dont you give it a go...
Its made by tommee tippee - its brand new to our shelves it came out 3weeks ago and it was called something like "small feeder" and its got like a mesh material bag connected to a plastic teething ring and it opens up. You can put icecues in the mesh bag or even those motherly cubes or if you make your own, but some pear icecubes in it. It has certainly been a good sent for us, because as soon as they are bothering him he sucks on it for ages.
I had also heard in the old days they used to put ice in the ends of stockings. - its a similar technique but its a real teething toy now! Give it ago, i got it from target, but have seen them in myre also
