Face rashes on a toddler
(A. Patterson)

Face rashes on a toddler may appear for many different reasons. These face rashes on a toddler may be due to a severe medical condition, allergic reaction or mild illness. When in doubt, the toddler should be taken to the doctor for diagnosis.


Eczema is a term used for a broad range of face rashes on a toddler. It is often caused by a skin sensitivity and can be controlled by discovering what triggers the rash.


Roseola is the result of a viral infection where a fever was present. Roseola presents itself after the fever has broken. The toddler is still contagious at this time.


Psoriasis may look like one of five different rashes and so it must be diagnosed by a doctor and possibly a paediatric dermatologist for a correct diagnosis.


Hives are an extremely itchy rash that appears red and looks like welts. This is often the result of an allergic reaction and should be treated by a doctor.

Scarlet Fever

Scarlet fever may also be referred to "slapped cheek" because it looks like the toddler has been slapped. It appears as pink or red and usually accompanies strep throat and fever.

Heat Rash

Heat rash occurs when a toddler's skin overheats. It may go away once the area is cooled or may last as a small, prickly rash.
