  • Could be any number of things. Look up "molloscum" and see if any of the pics match. My son has it. Its basically viral warts. They're contagious, but harmless. Thats my first guess

  • Could also be an allergy to something The again there is a viral thing that some kids get that look like that. Do's can't really do anything about it, but if it is still bothering you, you could take her to the doc, or suggest her mom do it.
