Just wanted to share this link about the dangers of benzocaine.

It's not like the stuff really worked anyways! ;-)

If I'm not mistaken there was a recall or some other warning involving Orajel a while back - so it's hard to even find the stuff these days.

Be careful with the "all-natural" stuff like Hylands Teething Tablets too! I don't remember the details, but there was a problem with that too.

Stick with the teething toys - you can even put many of them in the freezer - or a frozen, wet washcloth.

The Hyland's are back on the market and I haven't had any trouble with them with either of my boys.
