sounds like she may have chapped skin. The cold air isnt kind to anyone's skin. If possible try to keep her mouth dry to stop it getting too sore.

Hey thats ok meg, i'm glad you have her settled. my dd is 6 months and i used a hospital sterile wipe ( it claimed safe for intimate use) on her face as she was dribbling, it made her yell and the skin looked red for a little while. so be careful if you use wipes on her face too, it seems they are not as gentle as they claim to be.
