She's had soft stools on and for a few weeks now.

Got it--thanks

How long has she had it and have you tried anything for it?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
She's had it for about 2 months and we've tried eczema cream
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It started off as just a few bumps and now it's getting bigger
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 10 months ago

OK

It's not eczema

These look like a cluster of molluscum contagiosa--caused by a virus similar to the one that causes common finger warts

Nothing too serious and usually they go away on their own

But for now you can try over the counter RetinA or Retinol cream

A dermatologist can also eradicate them with a cold CO2 laser

Please let me know if you need any more information

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
