Black spots all over body, moles removed. Precancerous?

My 5yr old (caucason) daughter has little black dots sporadically on almost all parts of her body. They are the average size of a large pin head, and flat. I ve noticed them recently and I m a bit concerned since I ve had moles removed in the past that we re considered pre-cancerous . At her age, should I be concerned? Why are they so dark?

I can understand you concern for the spots in your baby. It is quite common to find a spot of simple freckles in white population of Caucasian origin. I have seen mothers are quite conscious regarding a grave possibility of the same.
You do not worry about the same. Let her be given the complete coverage form sun protection to avoid darkening of the same. Give her plenty of Vitamin A containing fruits and green leafy vegetables.
