my daughter has many bumps on her knees, elbow and the outside of legs. no fever though any clue? some big some small some with white.heads.

Molluscum?

Sebum
Hard to say without seeing it but from what you're describing it sounds like something called molluscum contagiosum, which is caused by a benign skin virus. There are treatments for this but often it resolves on it's own. Take her to your pediatrician or a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.

Which is the most effective treatment for molluscus contagiousum in a 4 year old boy (my son has had a few bumps for months behind his knees)?

No treatment

Bird_flu
Molluscum contagiousum is a viral illness, and presuming that he has a normal immune system, should not require any treatment. The lesions will generally go away in about 6 months. They can last longer than that, sometimes for years, though most will clear in a period of months.

Itchy bumps on elbows and knees. Why?

Allerfy? Psoriaisis?

This could represent dermatitis or psoriasis. This could be assocated with food allergy or atopic dermatitis. Try Hydrocrotisone over the counter. If not effective see dermatologist for evaluation amd treatment.

I have itchy bumps on elbows and knees. What could it be?

Rash

Open-uri20120702-25045-9xhh5i
Any skin condition is difficult to identify without seeing it or having more history. What does it look like?Is it red?Flad/Raised? Etc. It could be that your knees have come into contact with something and is showing an allergic reaction. Could be Eczema or Psoriasis or skin rashes can sometimes be a sign of something going on internally. Best to have a doctor take a look and take a full history.
