Validation

"This is called Molluscum Contagiusum. It's a viral rash and should eventually clear up on its own, but it can take up to a year for it to fully go away. If the bumps don't bother her, you can leave them alone, but if you don't like the look of them or if they're getting irritated, they can easily be removed by a dermatologist."

"Yeah, that's exactly what Dr. Google told me you would say."

Oh, my sister had those. I spent hours in a dermatologist's office listening to her scream as they froze them off. Shudder. Shudder. And my mom wonders where my hypochondria comes from.

My son had that when he was in preschool. It was mostly on his neck and not very visable, so we just left it alone. It did take a long time to go away, but it did go away on its own.

I'm sure that's not much comfort, but it's a very common thing for little people to have, so if you decide not to get it removed it shouldn't be a big deal.

BTW... love your blog!

Ugh. I'm so sorry she (I'm assuming it's Julia) came down with this. Here's hoping it clears up soon!
