baby has Rosy cheeks

My 3 m/o baby has had a head cold for a few days now. She now has rosy cheeks.
Like spotting redness on her face.
Is this normal? She hasn't had a fever, but she's been crying a lot.
Please help!

  • Mine gets bright bright rosy cheeks when she is cutting a tooth. Yours is probably teething. Mine will also get diaper rash.

  • Her skin might be a little flushed if she has a little fever. Mine wakes up from naps and sleep with rosy cheeks. I love it. I think its adorable.

  • It might be eczema. My 4 month old has it and it makes his cheeks really rosy. I'd check w/ your dr.
