Yes: The area around the bottom and upper legs is a common additional site of hfm, it just didn't make it to the label when the pattern was being named. If that's the only site and there are no blisters it could be something else. Te variability of hfm is quite diverse, with some having only one area involved.

Coxackie virus : The teatment is fever control and making sure your toddler does not get dehydrated due to difficulty drinking as there may be painful sores in mouth . HFM disease is a viral infection and there is no antiviral treatment
