How do I Know if my Baby has Popsicle Panniculitis?

Popsicle panniculitis is a firm, raised, red to purple mark on the cheek or chin that arises 1-2 days after exposure to cold. The lesion is often non-tender and the infant should be well, without fever or illness. It resolves without intervention over a few weeks. When teething, choose cool but not frozen objects to avoid accidental “Popsicle” panniculitis.
