Question: small red bump on leg and now another one

 hspear - Wed Apr 13, 2005 7:58 pm

My daughter (13 months) has had a small red bump on her leg for a few months. She now has another one next to it and the bigger one also now has what looks like a tiny scab in the middle of it.

any idea what it is?

Dear Hillary,
This could be a number of things, but all benign. You can try any over-the-counter topical steroid cream. It would help them fade easily!
