Question: 20 month old has Red Spots on Face


 deelynn2002 - Mon Jul 05, 2010 7:47 pm

This weekend my baby developed a sort of rash. Just a bunch of red spots on his face and neck. They are not raised and do not seem to itch or bother him at all. We were camping so we were outside all weekend and in the sun. Some family members said maybe a heat rash??? I was just wondering what it could be or what it could be caused from and if I should be treating it with anything.

User avatar Hello,
Children often develop rashes - sometimes from viral infection, exposure to sun, plants, chemicals or sun as in "heat rash." Usually there is nothing to worry about if they are not itchy and bothering the child.

Best wishes.
