Hi, not sure if this is the right place to post this, but yesterday I noticed a couple of white spots on my DD’s hand and there was also 1 on her face. The white one pictured has now popped and the red one above it has now turned white and she has another beside it. Not sure what it could be?? I don’t know if it is something health related or just something like a flea bite? We noticed one on our cat, he has since been treated but could that be a possibility? If she gets more or they don’t disappear, I am going to ring the doctors but thought I’d consult on here first.
DD is only 3 weeks old, bless her.
Many thanks in advance.

Doesnt look like flea bites. Do you get baby acne on hands?

Mosscolum congagisum!

Could be erythema toxicum or baby acne, but I've never seen it on the palm like that before, normally on the face/body I think.

(I'm not in any way medically qualified btw)

It's unlikely to be molluscum contagiosum on a 3 week old baby

I’m not sure if you get baby acne on hands. Possibly. But I have no clue, I’m a first timer lol grin
Defo doesn’t look like molluscum contagiosum (what a mouthful!) or erythema toxicum, but thank you smile

Hand, foot and mouth although these look more pus-like than I've seen. Does dc have this anywhere else?

Sorry I wasn't stating for sure it was HFM , should've been a question

Hey I was just googling and came across this post. My son has the same white spot on his hand. Did you ever find out what it was? Everything I've researched doesn't look similar so I was just curious as to if I should be worried or take him to see his Dr
