Could be: Hand-foot-mouth disease is a virus most commonly seen in younger children, but anyone can get it. It typically causes a fever and red bumps or spots on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and inside and around the mouth. It is common, especially in adults, to get some but not all symptoms.
