Reacting to Teething Sachets? (cmpi)

My daughter is cmpi and has been wheezing for the last week. We had just started giving her soya formula once a day having tried her with soya yoghurt over the course of a week with no reaction whatsoever. Anyway, when the wheezing started we stopped giving formula. Then I wondered if it was linked to teething as her teeth have really been bothering her.

Over the last couple of days we have used the Nelson's teething sachets a lot more than we ever have as they really help her. Today her wheezing seemed a lot worse, as did her gums so I gave her the teething sachets as frequently as I could...

I was doing a bit of googling to see if wheezing was related to teething and it seems it's not. Cue panic! Then my OH suggested it might be the sachets as they have lactose in them.

Anyone else experienced this?

Not wheezing, but we stopped using the teething sachets (Nelsons and Ashton & Parsons) because T got a red rash around her mouth when she got some on her face that Sandydad didn't wipe off properly.

I dont know what CMPI stands for, but if there's a dairy problem I'd definitely avoid the lactose based teething stuff. You can get the homeopathic chamomilla granules in sugar as an alternative option - they do more or less the same thing.
