What could it be?

My 3 month old has red rosey cheeks and chin. She is fussy and seems to not be eating as much as normal. She is not sleeping well but there is no fever. Does anyone know what could be causing this or have experienced this too? Should I contact her doctor?

  • sounds like she is teething and prob has chapped cheecks and chin. Has she been out in any cold weather? Try rubbing gums with your finger or cool rag. It will ease pain for the moment and maybe calm her down.

  • it might be a food allergy. My son in allergic to anything with tomatoes in it and breaks out in a red "rash" on his face where even it touched him at. My niece breaks out when cheese touches her face. Its weird but I would check with the doctor just to be safe. GL!
