Red Marking On Face

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My son has been getting these red marks on his face for a couple of months now. They come and they go. They are not raised, dry, or rough. They feel like normal soft skin. It does not bother him at all. At first I thought maybe it was from the cold weather and maybe he was licking his cheeks but they appear even when it isn't cold. They are bright red and seem to be under the skin, sometimes they are big and sometimes small. Right now he has a half circle on one cheek and a big dot on the other. Any ideas? could it be gluten related?

Yes, my daughter gets the same thing, and I do think it's from gluten. Sometimes they are on her face, other times on her legs. It stops when she's gluten free. Yesterday I made what I thought were gluten-free doughnuts, and they were delicious, but after eating them, she broke out with those markings on her face, one under her eye and another on her forehead by her hairline. Then I suddenly realized that the surface I used to roll out the dough had been used for rolling out wheat dough back before we went gluten-free, and though it had been used for other things and washed many, many times, there must have been traces of gluten still on it. I'm still learning about this!

Could they be hives from a different food? I've heard that food allergies can be common in people with celiac. From the people's signatures on here, i see quite a few that mention food allergies.

They don't look like hives but maybe. My other son used to get hives from augmenten and they looked more welty.

HI I'm new here to the site .. but yes, my daughter gets this too. Almost always on the right cheek and almost always after she's stayed at someone elses house for the day. We're positive it's becuase she's eaten something that she should not have even though we have a rule of "she can only eat what we pack for her". Sometimes it's so red that I think she colored it with marker. Her's seems to be a little rough and dry sometimes too and I'm not sure if this is because it's been alto more oftern than I would have hoped. She'll be two next month.

My son gets spots like that when he reacts to certain foods. During our stay with the inlaws he had really red cheeks and first I thought it was the cold weather as well but we are home and they are gone now. So I'm sure he was getting something there due to cross contamination or something. I know my inlaws didn't feed him anything purposely, they were really good about asking.

In addition to foods (soy is another thing that can frequently cause skin problems), it is possible to react to personal care products. Try hypoallergenic products and see if that makes a difference. My daughter (now 21) developed very sensitive skin when she was little and very few products don't make her skin red & blotchy to this day.

Fluoride from toothpaste, rinses, etc. can also cause redness on the cheeks.

Both my children also have contact allergic reactions to nickel (have to be careful with anything held against their skin for any appreciable amount of time).

Finally, is the air in your house humidified? Dry hot air in the winter can cause redness.

Hope you can get this figured out.
