What are these bumps on DD's skin?

DD (5) has had two circular colourless bumps, about 7mm diameter. One on her wrist, one above her elbow. She's had them about a week. When they first appeared I thought - ay ay, here comes chicken pox. but they didn't changed, and no more have a appeared. She's been under the weather for a few days. Yesterday the wrist one swelled a little, and i thought maybe it's CP after all. But today it's back to as it was. Not pus filled as far as i can tell. Any clues?

hate to say it but i think ds is starting with it too

he has a spot on his tum that looks familiar

dd had it on er torso and arms it was terrible but it went after a year

the secret is to get the hard pus out and not let it touch the surounding skin as thats how it spreads
not easy though and veru painful...
i used to bath dd and rub her skin briskly with towel and then tweezer them out while the skin was broken

i've seen molluscum on a friend's DD and this is totally different (thank goodness, i think!) it looks like two single chicken poxes.

Molluscum contagiosum?If so they get progressively worse and spread before spontansouly cleanrign some motnhs later ime. Teatree oil and Aveeno helped dd's from being too angry.
