Brief Answer:
Scabs represent healing of wound

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Scabs usually represent a phase in the healing of the wound and present as hard skin.
Since you have mentioned that your daughter has 3 spots looking like scabs and if it is scab only nothing needs to be done as she would have sufferred minor injury which is now healing. If she is complaining of pain then needs to be treated with local antibiotic ointments.

Hope I have answered your query

Thank you

Brief Answer:
Healing abrasions of the skin

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

I went through the pictures which you have sent. The photo appears like the lesions are healing. You can use antibiotic skin ointments for local application. The lesions will heal over 2- 3 days.

Hope I have answered your query.

Thank you
