    Default Dr Nase: Can my 9 month old daughter have Rosacea?

    Dr Nase, I really hope you have the time to give my a quick feedback about my taughts..

    I've got a 9 months old daughter who always becomes very red all over the cheeks and nose when we enter a warm room..
    She becomes red and it does seems to be bothering her a little, not much but a little..

    Myself I've got Rosacea the first time during my pregnancy 13 months ago..

    The doctors in sweden says it's unpossible that she's got it being a baby..
    But it really looks like it...


    I'd be so thankful if you have time to just write me back, yes or no..


    Many thanks,
    23 years old, from Sweden.
    Had my first Rosacea breakout during my pregnancy 2004


    I've tried Metronidazol cream and Tetracyclin but without any improvment

    Clara i just wanted to say that nearly all babies i see have rosy complexions as they have no ability to sweat when theyre little and so, i assume, lose their heat primarily through the top of their heads/skin.

    Its absolutely normal and i would try not to worry.

    Hello Clara,

    It is absolutely possible, but not likely. Just like Scrumptious eluded to -- babies/toddlers normally have this response and often get rashes that look quite similar. I would definitely not worry at all as it takes decades for it to really rear its head.

    Default Many thanks

    Many thanks to you both for answering!

    I'm aware that my daughter isn't the only baby flushing when entering warm rooms..
    But her flushing is so much more noticebel.. People are really staring at her.. So my guess is Rosacea, but only time can tell..

    Many thanks!!
