The reddish coloured one may me a capillary hemangioma and nothing to worry if it is not increasing in size.
The leg cramps usually occurs in this age group during nights and they are called growing pains.
As molluscum contagiosum is contagious, consult your Dermatologist for medical treatment for it.
