How should blisters from hand foot mouth treated? Pediatricians please. 

How should blisters from hand foot mouth treated? Pediatricians please. 

No need: The blisters from hfm disease do not need to be treated. As the infection resolves over several days, the blisters will resolve on their own. I know of no specific treatment that will hasten their resolution. If there id pain or itching, these symptoms can be addressed using acetaminophen (tylenol)/ibuprofen (motrin/advil) or diphenhydramine (benadryl).

Oral pain meds such: As acetaminophen or ibuprofen will be most effective for pain control, but some children complain more of an itchy sensation, and cold compresses, topical lotions used for poison ivy such as Ivy Dry or Caladryl may help. If itch is a problem, then oral antihistamines such as Benadryl or Zyrtec can be helpful.

My friend has fever blisters all over her mouth, could it be hand, foot, and mouth disease?

Probably not: A number of things can cause blisters all over the mouth including a number of viruses (including herpes but also many others) and also stress (causing aphthous ulcers). Hand/foot/mouth disease is much more common in infants and in all people generally resolves on it's own after a few days.

Comfort care: The blisters in coxsackie virus, or hand, foot and mouth disease are usually painless on the hands and feet unless they develop a bacterial infection. They can be covered with a bandage if needed to protect the underlying skin. The mouth blisters are painful enough to prevent eating and your doctor can provide medication to help with the symptoms.
