I think her face is getting chapped. My DS's mouth area gets exactly like that this time of year. Is she teething? I would put some salve or lotion or even dap a little bit of chapstick around the area.

Our foods that cause that- tomato, vit c fruits, juices.
Here too! Right down to fruits you don't think of as acidic, like cantaloupe! And yes, worse when teething. She had it for months when getting teeth.

My DD"s face is the same way right now! I finally, after weeks, tried ketoconazole (fungus cream) and it got wayyyyy better - but it's still red. I'm thinking acidic foods - probably tomato in all the stuff we've been eating lately and the acid in the juice she's drinking.

Does it look like this at all?

ETA: This is DDs rash. I still don't know the cause of it but we know what makes it go away. Wasn't caused by her paci, not by her thumb...we had no idea. Anyway, we tried yeast meds and that didn't work, tried a stronger yeast med and it tore her face up worse, now we use mometasone furoate ointment from the derm. I THINK its a strong cortisone but don't quote me cause I am not sure. Anyway, her rash comes back on and off and we just put cream on it and it goes away. Things like this are really hard to dx without going through lots of allergy testing. Really, although its annoying, its a minimal reaction. A referral to a derm may take months but see if the ped will give you something in the meantime. Good luck!

Both of my kids have a similar reaction to soy. Took me forever to figure out what it was though because they'd react to mayo or salad dressing but not all types. On them it looks a bit like a chemical burn. I agree with PP that banana and avocado could be the culprit. Or if you're using a new beauty product/eating something new. They have other food allergies but soy is the only one that leaves the red burned skin thing around their mouths.

Could be latex/banana? Some baby spoons (the kind with soft rubber) have latex, and banana is a cross-reactor.

My daughter had a similar rash and we finally figured out it was from the latex spout in her sippy cup.

My son had that when he was drinking from a bottle with a latex nipple. Turns out he has a latex allergy. Banana & avocado often go hand in hand with latex allergies. My girls got that rash from drinking fruit juices & citrus fruits.

OMG I never thought about a latex allergy. DD did use a sippy yesterday at her friends house and her rash popped up this morning...sorry don't mean to hijack. I am going to experiment once she is cleared up again.
