  • Yes, it's possible. My ds used to have rashes around his nose and mouth so often when he was little. Turns out... his skin is very sensitive and he breaks out when it comes in contact with his saliva and his umm... "nasal drippings?".. lol. Basically.. once he grew old enough to not drool or let his nose run his rashes stopped.

  • There is actually a little bit of natural acid in their saliva that helps break down the gums so the tooth can break through. This often gives them a rash from drooling and diaper rash as the digest the saliva.
