Molluscum Contagiosu: Molluscum contagiosum is a disease of day care in children. After they are infected, it itches, so they scratch. They look like little whiteheads, to skin color donuts with a dimple in the middle. Very contagious, and she can self inoculate (spread by scratching). Can be frozen, cut, or curettes off, also can use "bettlejuice"..I don't recommend that, left large scars on my son. Check by derm!
