Hand Foot ; Mouth : This could be many problems, including a cold or the flu. But it could also be hand, foot ; mouth disease which causes rashes in each location and causes low appetite and fatigue. The rash in the mouth is inside on the cheeks and looks like knitted lace. It is caused by a virus and is highly contagious but usually has no lasting symptoms. Hydration is key and a visit to the doctor is important.
