2 Bumps

My 13 yr old son has been getting these blisters on his left arm around his elbow area...

They are a perfect circle and they start off really painful and bleeding..then they have a scab over them...he just got his 5th one.....does anyone have any idea what this is so I can maybe look it up online before I decide to take him to the doctor. Thank you.

  • Do they start out looking like water filled blisters that are about the same size or smaller than an eraser on a pencil? If they look like this then it sounds like Molluscom (sp) contagiousom. If you scratch they will spread. I wish you luck but they can last for a few years.
