Yea thats true,it usually go away without treatment in about 1-2 yrs.and if treatment is the option it can be painful to the child and scar might appear.Using 10% Potassium hydroxide aqueous solution applied twice daily might help.Tretinoin, salicylic acid might also help.If you really need to apply consult your doctor about the dose and all.And yea one more make sure your daughter doesn't scratch it or it might spread to other areas.
