Dd is 3 and I've just noticed tiny pin prick spots under each eye. Otherwise she's totally fine. Any ideas??

Is she coughing? That can bring a rash like that out-or constipated grin

Otherwise it may well just be a viral rash. Ds gets them and he's rarely ill with them.

No cough or constipation. Strange. Probably something viral like you say.

Looks like something called petechia. It's broken blood vessels into the skin. I get it around my eyes when I vomit. My DC have both had it when they've had a virus. Does she only have it on her face?

Has she been cuddling someone stubbly?

Sorry that sounds weird but I notice the same on my DC when they've been snuggling up with DH. It fades soon after.

No stubbly cuddles or vomiting. Disappeared after a day or two, very strange.

Sounds viral then outnumbered. If it persists see your GP x
