I was just wondering if anyone else's child had this? It's kind of on her lower cheeks, like little raised bumps. Any way to get rid of them?

Google keratosis pilaris- that's what it looks like to me.

Your GP should diagnose it and they can give you some creams that might help. It's nothing to worry about if it is KP.

I think urea creams or other exfoliant types help.

A cream with high urea is what you need if it's KP. Eucerin do one

Wow! Thanks for quick replies, I'm not really concerned about it but she's a little self conscious about it. I did google and was thinking it looked a bit like KP but some of the pics were nothing like it. Will try some urea cream. smile
This is why I love mumsnet!
