My four month old dd has very red cheeks. Sometimes they even get to be little dime-sized parts on her cheek where the first layer of skin is gone. She rubs at her cheeks like it bothers her sometimes, and then she always rubs her eyes, cheeks and forehead when she's falling asleep. I have just started to put comfrey and calendula oil on them, but I wondered if anyone else has experienced this and has any suggestions.Her cheeks have been this way since she was about 2mths old, but they have flared up and then they'll get better(but only for a day or so)What is it, and how can I help?I sleep with her in my bed at night and I wonder if it has anything to do with my milk running down on her cheeks and then sleeping in it all night or I don't know that's just a GUESS.????Food allergy, rash??
