5 year old with red cheeks. Her cheeks are red sometimes, is it a symptom of slapped cheek syndrome?
Hello, my 5 years old daughter's cheeks are red, her cheeks are not red all time but sometimes. It is not causing her any issues. Yesterday I checked her temperature, she had a normal temperature. Can anyone tell me what might be causing her red cheeks? Or does she have red cheek syndrome? Help!!
@bien Hello, Slapped cheek is a viral infection caused by the human parvovirus B19. It is also called the fifth disease or erythema infectiosum. It may take between four and 14 days after your child is exposed to slapped cheek for any symptoms to show. The symptoms can vary and are usually so mild that many parents won't realize that their child has had the virus. The first symptoms can include fever, headache, stomach upsets, aches, and pains. If she doesn’t have any discomfort then it might be eczema or sunburn. If it is causing her any sort of discomfort then please talk to your doctor, if not then it is fine. Thanks!
