Q.

Blood vessels

My 2 1/2 year old daughter seems to have little burst blood vessels on her cheek which have appeared overnight. Any idea of what could be the cause of this. I haven' t taken her to the doctor yet as it' s weekend.

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

This can occur if a strong cortisone ointment has been used on the skin of her face in the past or sometimes it is due to a bad cough. It would be best to take her to be seen by her paediatrician.
