I realize this is from October 2010, but did you ever find out what this was? My 15 month old has the same thing now.

This seems to be a very old question, but it can be due to heat, scarlet fever, measles, drug reaction, food allergy, insect bite or sun exposure. I wonder which one this was. It seems that the questioner must come online and clarify the problem.

Her pediatrician, who I spoke to on the phone only, and I are suspecting that it is Roseola since she had a fever for a few days before (sorry I didn't mention), but I didn't see anything online that mentioned this pink area around the eyes, so I was just wondering if it might be something else. I will see how it develops over the next 24-48 hours. Thank you so much for responding.
