Molluscum?: This could be a number of thing including molluscum contagiosum , a viral infection which is only on the skin. If this is spreading see doctor for early treatment. These do eventually resolve after 1-2 years, but they are easily removable.

?keratosis pilaris: Although the distribution of kp typically is more on the cheeks, extensor surfaces of upper arm, and buttocks, this child could be presenting with kp. I would want to know if they are bright red-pink or skin-colored pink, and then the usual history for an atopic-type child.
