can babies have rosacea?

My cousin has a baby the same age as mine (11 months) and her babies cheeks are always very pink. Rosy like. Anyways she said the she was born with rosacea. But a while back my baby had a rash and i was thinking rosacea but my pediatrician said no that they can't get rosacea until later when hormones come in or somethign like that. Anyways so now i am confused. Which doctor is right and knows what they are talking about? I didn't say anything but it has had me wandering does my pedia not know what she is talking about? So do you know if they can have rosacea or not.

  • I'm not sure, but my daughter's doctor suggested that's what my daughter had on her cheeks just this morning at her 2 year visit.
