Hand, foot, mouth?: Your daughter's symptoms sound consistent with hand, foot, and mouth disease (hfm). Hfm is caused by a virus. The most important thing is to make sure is drinking enough fluids so that she does not get dehydrated. There are no medicines that will kill the virus, you just have to wait for her to get over it.
