Why does the child have red cheeks?
A light blush on the cheeks has always been considered a sign of excellent health, and parents are happy with such a manifestation without exception – it means that the child has a good circulatory system. But it is necessary to distinguish the usual healthy blush from the painful redness of the cheeks. Surprisingly, red cheeks are a very common symptom and can indicate various health problems, ranging from frostbite, ending with infectious diseases and dangerous allergic reactions.
The main reason to be on the alert is the sudden appearance of redness. So, if your cheeks are blushing after active games, jogging and other physical exertion – then this is quite natural and normal. Sometimes the face of the baby blushes due to the rise in body temperature – then you should understand the reasons for this reaction of the body. But when the skin of the child reddened dramatically, and without any noticeable reasons, it is worthwhile to seek medical advice from a doctor. The examination will help to identify the specific cause that causes this symptom, and will allow to fight it in a directed manner. Let’s find out what can cause redness of the cheeks in the child.
In all babies, the skin is very tender, so it reacts to external stimuli more actively than the skin of an adult person. Therefore, walking in the winter is important to understand that the lower limit of the allowable temperature for the child is lower. So, for frostbite skin on the face (this part usually remains practically not protected from frost) it will be enough 10-15 degrees below zero.
