Clear pimple-like bumps on my 2 year old

My child is 2 and has had this rash for several days now.  The bumps are not close together, clear and raised and do not itch.  They are on his arms, hands, legs, feet, and a few on his forehead and behind his ears, but none on his trunk or back at all.  This rash doesn't bother my child but it looks bothersome.  They look like tiny pimples that can not be popped.  They do not have pus because they are so small and they are not red, just a clear hard, blister looking bump.  Any idea what this could be?

Hello,
From the symptoms it sounds like molluscum contagiosum. It is a self limiting viral infection which causes multiple, small, dome-shaped papules, often with a central depression or plug. It generally affects children and typically occurs in the 2-5 age group.Treatment includes physical destruction or manual extrusion of the lesions, cryotherapy, and curettage. But since it is self limiting, not much treatment is required.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
