  • Ruling out that the dilly pop did not have a cherry coating. Frostbite does not turn the skin red, but more like a deep ugly blue green color. Could she have had an allergic reaction? I would check out with her doctor to make sure just what it in. Good Luck.

  • Hmm, not sure. My daughter gets red marks on the sides of her mouth when she eats ranch dressing, which i now know is an allergic reaction, but it goes away within a half hour or so. I hope you get some answers Ü

  • Well it could be an allergic reaction or could it possibly be hand, foot, and mouth? That would have white bumps in the mouth.

  • That is a lot of nasty chemicals for a small child.
