My 5 year old has small brown lumps around her mouth that have been there for about 6 months now.
I took her to our GP last week because she also has somewhat bigger lumps under her arms that almost look like zits. The GP said that both her mouth and under her arm are Molluscum. I googled it because I was unsure thats what was on her face. Sure enough, under her arm looks exactly like molluscum, but the lumps on her face look completely different and arent itchy at all like her arm is, like Molluscum is supposed to be.

So Im wondering if whats on her face is something different. It started way before the lumps under her arm did and just look completely different.

Here's a picture of it:

Does anyone know what it could be?

ETA: Just for comparison, these are the Molluscum under her arm

Hi aussie_mama22

I wondered whether you ever managed to solve this problem? My daughter too has had these around her mouth. Very many thanks.
