Flea bites? or just spots?

Anyone got any experience of these?

My 2 kids have got spots on random parts of their bodies. On both they appear in singles generally on legs or arms though on the body too.

The spots when I have seen them 1st tend to appear with a white head on them. Then they scab over and take a few days to go.

They don't appear itchy.

My husband and I are not affected.

Our cat - I am ashamed to say - is not treated very often - though she had her jabs recently - a few months ago and didn't have evidence of fleas then. I haven't seen any in their bedding or mattresses.

Just about to do a massive cleaning sesh and hoover mattresses etc, but not entirely sure these are from fleas.

Any help grateful.

My dd has molluscum on her torso and around inner elbows. They have a white, blistery appearance and can scab over if scratched. Some can be quite large though so not sure if it sounds the same or not. Just a thought.
