any ideas what this is? Appeared on DSs (7yo) over last few weeks. Not causing pain so haven't taken to a gp but would be interested to know...

Molluscum contagiosum?

Could be, although it's the only one I've noticed on his body. Will double check in the morning though. Thank you!

I would make an appointment with the GP.

You have to be careful with spots in the face, because if its an infection it can spread rapidly due to the large. Umber of blood vessels in the face. Many GPs will prescribe A/b for infected spots in face, whereas that usually isn't necessary for spots on other parts of the body.

Could it be a mole coming up?

That was my first thought Iam, but he's not especially moley and I've never noticed one come up before...

Lemony, thanks I think I may do that.
