She woke up with one red cheek this morning and I thought it was from sleeping on it, but it doesn't seem to be going away.  Could it be allergy rash or would that show up on both cheeks?

My 5 yo DD recently had a red patch like that.  I thought it was from daddy's unshaven face.  But it lingered then turned dry.  I do think it must be allergy related but k=can't figure out to what.  She is allergic to dairy, egg, peanut, tree nut and shellfish already.

What does it feel like? Is it bumpy, rough, etc? It looks like something my girly used to get from Soy except she had it on both cheeks, her's was a little rough feeling.

It doesn't seem to be raised or dry. Now there is a secondary small spot up closer to her eye.
I was starting to think just teething, but mow I don't know.

How long has it been there? If it's something like eczema you could try rubbing some coconut or olive oil on it a few times a day and see if that helps. Does it look like a bug bite? Have you changed laundry detergents, etc.? I'm sorry I'm not more help!
