My Son Has Rosy Cheeks

My 6 months old baby  has pink cheeks. I started noticing it late fall and early winter. Even when we haven't been outside his cheeks still look pink.  I also noticed that it comes and goes and it's pinker when he is sleeping or just got up from a nap. Sometimes, it looks dry so I apply my aloe lotion on it and it helps moisturize it.




He does not seem bothered about it though, I  know that sometimes lighter complexion can make baby's skin looks pinkish. I read that when a baby starts teething they will have pink cheeks too, due to fever. He doesn't have fever and he has been showing signs of teething in the last 3 months. It could be a lot of reasons why he has pink cheeks. A lot of my friends think that his pink cheeks make him  look cuter.


 I heard of this skin condition on babies called  Slap Cheeks Syndrome. Slap cheek is the appearance of a distinctive bright red rash on the cheeks and that's how it got its name. It is caused by a Parvovirus B19 that is airborne. Another reason for pink cheeks is Rosacea, a redness in the face, nose or forehead and usually runs in the family. It could be nothing and that he is just a healthy baby with pink cheeks.
