rosy red cheeks

My son is eight months old. He is teething, the past two days his cheeks begin to turn bright red. Last night his cheeks were really hot. After speaking to a on duty nurse she advised me to see my son's doctor within the next three days. This morning I took my son to see his doctor, he has Panniculitus. I will no longer freeze his teething ring. I will place a wet wash cloth in a zip lock bag & place it in the freezer that way he will no longer get freezer burn.
