Dear madam,
I understand your concerns about your child's health. Moluscum contagiosum is a skin disease caused by viruses. It cannot cause red circles under eyes or insomnia. Since several doctors are saying that she is healthy, you need not be too much worried.
Your daughter falls under the category of picky eater who eats less and nutritional deficiencies can make her pale with less energy. Here are some tips
1. Don't force feed your child. Feed frequently with small quantities.
2.Make eating and dining fun
3.Let her help in cooking like cutting vegetables.
4. Set as an example by eating all food items.
5. Minimize distractions. No television.
6. Add fruits and vegetables- it gives glow to skin, decreases lethargy and increases body resistance to infections.

Don't worry you are going through normal phase of growing your kid just like any other parent. She will be soon good. Take care.
