Hi, im totally knew here & have been scouring the internet hopinf someone might know what these bumps are on my 4yr old daughters knees. They just appeared last week out of nowhere and are now starting on her elbows too. They're nowhere else on her body & not itchy. Her GP has no idea what they are so just gave her a steroid antibiotic cream, which so far hasnt done a thing. They do seem to be gettingworse & almost merging into bigger patches

Did she crawl around outside a day or two before the bumps appeared?
I've seen my DC get similar, might be contact dermatitis that is photo sensitive. Strange but not always itchy.
Keep the rash away from sunlight and keep using the cream.

No she hasnt been crawling about or doing anything out of the ordinary. They just look so strange cause its quite raised. I put some manuka honey on it tonight & it calmed the redness slightly.
She is prone to excema & dry skin so could be a form of contact dermatitis. Wouldve thought a Dr wouldve know that tho. She just said she had no idea what it was!
