A:   Thank you for your question. It is possible that the skin of her face may have reacted to this product resulting in the observable redness. We would recommend that you have it examined in person by a doctor to determine if she needs any topical antiinflammatory creams to reduce the redness, and prevent the spread of this reaction.
