HFM disease: Hand Foot Mouth Disease is a viral infection during which rashes appear usually to the palms, soles, and mouth. The appearance of the rash can be somewhat variable, but healing with darker pigmentation and a small scab or scale is not uncommon, and not dangerous. Permanent scarring should not occur provided the scales are not picked at.
