He got roofing glue on hands and forearm four months ago. He cleaned it off but now he has blisters and they hurt and itch.

Need biopsy: The base of these needs to be scraped and examined under the microscope for cells with inclusion bodies. Hand foot and mouth disease usually has a maculopapular rash caused by intestinal viruses of the picornaviridae family. commonly Coxsackievirus A16 and Enterovirus 71 but these are seldom painful.

Echymosis : Without seeing a picture of the Hickey - like spots you are describing on your arm and abdominal area , the first thing that comes to mind is bruising . The blisters could have been due to some viral illness . I revommanded seeking medical care to have at least a blood count to check your blood count and your platelets . Stop any NSAID's such as Asprin , Aleve , Inuprophen . Avoid any trauma . ...Read more
