Rash: A recurring rash would be good reason to consult a dermatologist to determine the cause and set you on a course of treatment. You should be seen when the rash is prominent and not treated with cortisone, so the doctor can diagnosis it more readily.
Dr. John Chiu

Contact agents: Likely something you are using on your hands. Since you didn't mention itching, an irritant reaction is a more likely cause. Try to use mild soap to wash your hands and apply a moisturizer after washing. Sanitizing gel can dry up and irritate your skin as well. Excessive hand washing can do the same.

Get tested: If you have high risk sexual behavior or use IV illicit drugs, get tested. Don't wait for symptoms because you might not have them until really late. Only one lymph node is not very dangerous but i would have a consultation with the physician to be on the safe side.

My 2 yr daughter has hand, foot and mouth disease for last 4 days. The ulcers / blisters in mouth make it difficult for her to drink and eat.. What medication will be most suitable?

Numb the mouth: Anything that will decrease the pain in the mouth will help her drink. Ice cold foods act as a local anesthesia as they numb the area. Try popsicles, ice cream, jello, as well as pedialyte popsicles that will keep her hydrated. Also oragel will help. As it is a viral disease, there is no antibiotics that will help it. It will go away on its own.
