Rash/patches on babies face. what could this be?

My son has the 3 little patches on his face. They come and go but they get real red. They will go away and come back in the exact same spots. He's had them for ab 2 weeks now.

I thought it may be dry skin but I'm starting to thibk its something else.

  • Are they on his cheeks? It sounds like chapped cheeks to me, but I would ask his ped.

  • My daughter would get small rashes at her temples when she was having a negative reaction to foods. She has no allergies now that she's 4, but we had to be VERY careful what we gave her, and vigilant to see what she was reacting to.

  • My daughter had that problem and we found out it was eczema. Now we give her hydrocortizon and the redness goes away. your child may have something similar..
