Hi everyone!

My dd came home from dads last week with what looked like a spot. I have been monitoring it and it hasn't been bothering her but today she's complaining. I've obviously missed the go today now but it's starting to smell a little bit I think it's a definite infection but no fever etc.

Should I leave it or get it seen to?

I would get that checked out definitely.

Draw a circle around the edge of where it's red, if it's spreading get it seen tonight, if not, go to walk in tomorrow.

Draw a circle around the red part with a sharpie marker so you can keep an eye on the expanding redness / infection.

It looks like benign molluscum contagiosum but better to have a doctor confirm it.

Thank you! Yes the nursery mentioned that. She had a few spots underarm before but never to this level! It's painful to touch.

She is totally fine in herself otherwise tho. The ring around is maybe 1mm wide.
