My granddaughter has little bumps that look like tiny warts

This answer was rated:

My granddaughter has little bumps that look like tiny warts or blisters on her face and neck, could this be herpes? thanks
HelloCustomerbr /> when did she got these blisters?
how many ?
what is the exact location - cheek , forehead ,lips,?
Does she have fever?
what is her age?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
she is 5 and has had the blisters for more than a year. They are on her chin and near her nose and the side of her neck. She does not have a fever. The bumps seem to spreading but not like a rash. Washing her face seems to calm them for a short period of time then they are back just as they were. thanks
dear ggardner,

it is surely not herpes. because herpes never persists continuously for a year. herpes occurs in groups. n they have watery fluid in them.

it could be another skin disease:-

molluscum contagiosum(with indentation on the surface, white coloured)
milia(whitish coloured)

however its difficult to diagnose without seeing the lesions. could u post an image?
From your description ,it doesnot seems like herpes.
it would be great if you can give an image or see an dermatologist.

do you think they could be seed warts? I dont have any way to send a photo, sorry
OK
Common wart or seed warts are caused by HPV.
These warts may have a tiny black dot in the center that resembles a seed. The black dot is a capillary vessel that carries blood to the common, plantar or seed warts.

Here is a link tell whether this is what she is having.

Treatment consist of--
Prescription medications to burn the wart ,
using a light electrical current to burn them ,
using liquid nitrogen to freeze the wart , or
using laser treatment
