White spots on cheek

Hi, My baby is 1. 2 yes old and she has recently developed a white patch on both her cheeks. It's not on the skin but looks like some deficiency.. She has about 25 ounces of milk daily and has a cube of cheese. It's not causing her any discomfort as well.. I wanted to know if someone else has also observed such a thing before on babies and if I need to see a doctor? Thanks Neha

Thanks guys... Lot comforting after reading your comments.. Maybe iron as my daughter is not a good eater.. She typically is on milk and doesn't like solids that much.. I'll take her to the doctor and have it checked as well..

My elder one also had it when she was 1. It cleared on its own. But I suspect it as iron deficiency. Do check with doctor to find exactly what is the deficiency.

I observed similar mark on only 1 side but it disappeared in 1-2 months without doing any thing. May be some food intake but not sure.
