Hi,

As per your query you have symptoms of redness and inflammation on the face of the baby which seems to be a type of allergic reaction known as urticaria. It could be due to vitamin deficiency as well. Need not to worry. I would suggest you use a moderately potent topical steroid such as fluticasone, twice daily over the whole affected area and use it for 5-7 days. Wash the area with plain water and apply ice pressure on it. Visit dermatologist once and get it examined to find out the exact cause of lesion and start treatment accordingly. Drink plenty of water.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari, Dentist
