    Default What is this rash??

    The last couple of days bubs cheeks seem to have this rash on them, its not too bad but is rough and a bit red. Its more on one cheek than the other. Im worried it could be eczema?? Or maybe a food allergy? He has just started trying natural greek yogurt (dairy) and also tried kids weetbix (wheat).
    Anyone have any idea what it could be??? Ive just started putting coconut oil on it so hopefully that will help

    My DS has something similar and I've put it down to our ducted heating drying his cheeks out a little bit. Bit of cream (we use moogoo) and it's all good.

    My DD has a rash like this that comes and goes on her cheeks. I also thought it was just 'rots cheeks' but it was a bit rough and bumpy to touch. It didn't seem to bother her. I put it down to eczema, used Cetaphil for dry skin cream twice daily and it clears it up within days.
