bumps on child's legs

My 6 year old has 5-7 small red bumps on her legs, near her bottom.  They look like little red raised moles.  They have been on her legs for about 6 months.  Sometimes she gets a full rash, sometimes its just the bumps.  Any thoughts about what is causing it?  We have been treating the rash with a steriod cream, but nothing is touching the bumps.

Hi,

These could be some blocked pores of sebaceous or oil glands of the skin. They could also be some fungal infection turned unrecognizable or incognito by frequent application of the steroid ointment. It is therefore recommended that you stop using the steroid cream and try to maintain better hygiene. Visit your pediatrician/dermatologist and allow a diagnosis to be achieved before applying anything on the child.

Let us know what the doctor says and keep us posted on your health. Also let us know if you have any other questions.

Regards.
