In brief: Not typically

Rosacea is an affliction of adults.
Something similar in appearance that affects kids is a perioral dermatitis & steroid rosacea.This often start as fine bumps or pimple like irritation in the folds near the nose & mouth, due to finger to mouth activity & saliva.Otc or rx steroids initially seem to help before amplifying the problem. Topical abx are the rx of choice.Your dr can assess the situatn.
