Consult a dematologi: It is hard to diagnose without looking at it. I suggest you consult a Dermatologist to get it diagnosed and treat appropriately

What are the symptoms of slapped cheek disease?

Dr. Pamela Lindor

Rash: Fifth disease (also called "slapped cheeks" or erythema infectiosum), is a mild childhood viral infection caused by parvovirus. Generally, children are only mildly ill, but will develop a very distinct rash, first on the face, and then often on the arms and legs. They may have a runny nose or low grade fever as well.

What is the treatment of slapped cheek disease?

Dr. Ruben Nazario
Specializes in Pediatrics
Fever control: Slapped cheek disease is also known as fifth disease. It is caused by parvovirus b19, a common virus that causes sore throat, fever, headache, and the characteristic "slapped cheek" rash. The rash usually appears towards the end of the illness and may spread to the chest and arms. The treatment is supportive care, with fever control and lots of fluids. The rash eventually goes away on its own.

Is it safe to wear makeup in pregnancy?

Probably: Yes, it's probably safe, especially if you're buying conventional products sold in stores. On the other hand, no testing of the sort that would be necessary to absolutely prove the safety has been done. It would not be ethical to, say, take a bunch of pregnant women and lather half of them with tons of makeup and the leave the other half untouched to compare the rate of birth defects.
A member asked:

My baby isn't feeling well and has spots on the inside of his cheek. What could be causing these spots? Is this serious enough to bring him to doctor?

Dr. Irwin Berkowitz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Thrush: The most likely cause for spots on the inside of the cheeks is thrush (oral candidiasis). This is a fungal infection. If your child is uncomfortable he/she needs to see the pediatrician to confirm the diagnosis and treat with an antifungal suspension. There are other causes of rashes inside the cheeks which are usually viral but are associated with other symptoms.
A member asked:

What should I do about white spots on the inside of my baby's cheek?

Dr. Scott Katz
Pediatrics 26 years experience
Thrush: White spots inside your baby's cheeks are usually a sign of a common condition known as thrush. If the spots do not come off by simply wiping with a burp cloth, your pediatrician should examine your baby to determine if treatment is required. Thrush can become painful and bleed if not treated.
