Red spots

My son has these red spots on his cheeks, like the ones you develop when you go out in the cold.  He also has two of these spots on his bottom.  Any ideas what this could be?

Maybe food allergy, ask the pharm or his ped.

     my daughter had a few of these...turns out it was just her skin being irritated and dry from the winter weather, all i had to do was keep putting lotion on, and it went away.

     another possibility could be rosacea, m bff's daughter has this, i would recommend the lotion until you can ask your pediatrician about it.

Thanks for the replies!  The spots were there when he went to sleep and they are now gone.  I will make sure to tell the ped about it when we see her.
