After our daughter took her bath tonight I noticed some "bumps" under one arm in the pit area, then I looked and she had the same thing under the other arm. They are not red bumps, and they are not moles and this is the first time I've ever seen them on her, about 4 under 1 arm and 3 under the other one.
These "bumps" (because I don't know what to call them) are the same color as her skin and look like a tiny worm, what I mean by that is they aren't flat against the surface of her skin they stick out, are very skinny and the longest one sticks out maybe a cm at the most. I asked her if they itched or hurt and she said sometimes her shirt rubs them, I asked her if she had any idea how long she had had them and she said she hadn't looked at them before so she doesn't know. She is 7 and very independent and while bathing only asks for help with her hair sometimes so I can't say for sure how long these have been there but I would say no more than a couple months but I'm not positive. If anyone has an idea of what they might be so that I can look it up I'd appreciate it. I did try to do a search and the only thing I could find was something called a "skin tag" but I'm not sure if thats correct.
She does see her Ped Endo on Friday so I will be sure to ask what they are but in the meantime all input is appreciated from anyone here that may know what I'm talking about.
Hugs & Luv,
