Tight, peeling skin on cheeks, minor rash looking thing...

My 6 month old DD had what looked like a rash on her cheek the other day (sorry, no pics), and now her cheeks look like they're peeling, right in the middle. The redness is gone, and it doesn't seem to bother her. I was just wondering if anyone else has seen this, and may know what it's from?

  • Is it dry in your house, or could it be from cool wind outside? I would apply vaseline.

  • It doesn't feel dry in my house...but maybe it is the wind. We went for a walk the other day, but I cut it shourt cuz of the wind. Thanks!

  • Could be windburn then. Keep it moisturizer and babys fingernails short just in case it strts to itch.

  • It seems to have gone away now, and it didn't bother her. Sensative baby skin! If it comes back, I'll take her to her ped. Thanks ladies!
