The Bump Baby Registry

Madison has started to get red by her face/mouth (and nowhere else). I know that redness in the face can be common and am assuming this is due to drooling/pacifiers, etc.
I guess I am wondering how common this is and what is the symptoms of an allergy? Redness all over? She's never been allergic to anything or had a breakout before so I'm not sure what this is.....
Anyone have the mouth redness (really upper lip between the nose)? Did you go to the doctor for this?
No fever, and she's in good spirits but I am ready to get her in the doctor tomorrow just to check it out.
Re: ? about redness/rashes
mady has had this before...it could be a little eczema - use some aveeno or lubriderm on her. it could also be related to the drooling and paci as you mentioned.
a couple of months ago i started noticing tons of small rashes around her chin and mouth, that came with a fever...it turned out to be hand foot and mouth disease. the bumps also started showing around her hands and feet and inside her mouth.
if she seems to be eating fine with no fever i wouldnt worry too much, but if i were you and you are worried just to be safe id have her seen by her pedi.
The girls said what I was going to! Since her bottom teeth just came in I would chalk it up to teething but think you are in the right to get it checked out the next time you are at your doctor's just in case. I hope the Aquaphor works! Also, it may be chaffed skin because of the weather.
Sophie and I both get wind burns on our lips when the weather cools down so if it correlates with the change in temperature, too, clean it and add a little vaseline to the area - especially before her naps and bedtime. If she was drooling a lot and then it got cold that area may have gotten chaffed a bit.
