Hi,

How would you describe these bumps? Are they found only under the fingers or would you mean under the fingernails ? Are there other similar lumps or bumps in other parts of the body? Any discolorations in certain areas of the body (eg scalp, neck, back)?

Lumps and bumps that do not involve the fingernails may have the common warts, dishydrosis or pompholyx and herpetic whitlows as differentials. Herpetic whitlow and pompholyx usually appear in clusters. This does not seem to be your daughter’s case as you have only mentioned single bumps.

If the bumps are beneath or near the fingernails , a consult with your child's pediatrician for a complete physical examination will be able to help. Nail conditions may represent underlying systemic disease processes or they may simply  be isolated cases of nail disorders.
