I used the Nelsons teething powder with Lewis and it worked wonders. It's all natural ingredients in it too. I user to give Lewis a wooden spoon too, sounds stupid but he would sit and chew on it for ages and it must of relieved some pain.

It's horrible isn't it. Abbie is awful with teething, Katie doesn't bother with it much, but Ella was bad too. We tried Ashtons and Parsons, New Era herbal tablets, etc and nothing worked at all for Ella or Abbie. Bonjela straight out of fridge was only thing we have found to work and dummies straight from the fridge. Swap dummy every hour or so with one from fridge. Make sure right kind of Bonjela - 2m onwards kind only as other not suitable for babies. My mum swore by Detinox gel for me and my sis - can use it every 20 minutes or so. Again straight out of the fridge. xx
