OK My daughter has been diagnosed with this and it has spread to her legs and arm. The Doc said let it run it's course (5 months to 5 years!!!) I need something to keep them from getting on her face. School starts Monday, and even though it is contagious, they said to send her to school (as you can not keep them out of school for years waiting on it to cure up) It isn't painful nor does it cause any bad symptoms.....only unsightly......But what little girl wants to be spotty??? PLEASE HELP!!!

I use the K-12 program. It's free in my state. It's an online public school. This isn't an ad. I just think it would keep her self esteem from suffering.

And honestly, if some other child caught this from your child, the rumors would start flying.

My nine year old granddaughter had it also. Find a doctor that will treat it with medication. She sees the doctor once a week and he applies a ointment which is a little uncomfortable at first, but it works. It only took her two months to clearup. Find a doctor that understands this problem instead of wishing it away. Good Luck.

My granddaughter had the same thing and she had to go to the doctor once a week to have medication applied, which was a little uncomfortable at first. She was completely cleared up in two months. Find a doctor that knows aboout this problem and not one that wants you to wish it away. Good Luck.

I am happy to report that my daughter has not had one new one pop up in almost 4 weeks! After she had the initial break out and then it got worse, I put the Apple Cider Vinager on it 3 times a day and then left it on bandaids at night (the little circle ones) She had about 80-100 total. It did spread to her arm and one of her legs. But it stopped there. She was taking 3 of the immune vitamin gummys (instead of 2) and then I would open up a vitamin A capsule and drip it on a scoop of icecream every night. So I honestly don't know what it was that cured it so fast. We are blessed!!!! Hope this helps someone else!
