Hand, foot, mouth: Hand, foot and mouth disease is a very common viral illness in the summer months. It is benign and resolves within a week. The blisters can appear on the hands, feet and in the mouth and can be very painful. The only other symptom may be a low-grade fever.

Could be coxsackie: Small red blisters on palms & soles can have several causes. Commonly a viral infection (coxsackie virus) causes hand-foot-mouth disease. Treatment is for symptoms. See your doctor since there are other causes which need antiboitics.

Nothing: Coxsackie virus causes hand-foot and mouth disease. The most frequent locations for the blisters/ulcers are on the palms of the hand, soles of the feet, and in the mouth. It is quite contagious, so frequent hand washing is imperative. Self-limiting, so hang in there.
