I am a pediatric nurse. It is probably molluscom. It is viral and does have a treatment of a topical medication. I have never seen a good turn out with it but I would follow up with Dr to be sure that is what it is and it usually goes away in time on its own . Try the medication but if youdont see a good outcome I wouldn't continue. It has to be put on skin by a dr. or nurse and you would have to constantly go to office for it. Like I said , not often it was effective.

Liz: I don't know how old your son is, but two of my children were pre-school age when they contracted a virus called molluscum contagiosum. The bumps appeared on their inner arms, stomach and neck. They looked like small warts with an indentation in the center. Because it's a virus, there may not be a treatment. Our doctor gave me a cream for the itching and that's it. After a couple of weeks, the bumps dried out and fell off. My son has no scars but my daughter has barely visible pock marks on her arms and neck.

Take him to the doctor. Nobody here can determine what it might or might not be.
