More suggestions: Your daughter's dry hands many indicate that she has eczema or contact dermatitis.

My 11 month old has tiny red flat dots on the top of one hand (not the palm). Could this be hfm? Allergic reaction?

My 11 month old has tiny red flat dots on the top of one hand (not the palm).  Could this be hfm?  Allergic reaction?

Doubt HFM: Hfm lesions are generally blisters & often have a grayish tint and oval shape. Tiny red flat dots could be an allergic reaction to something that came in contact in that local. An exam would be helpful but is probably not worth the time off work if localized & not bothering the kid. ...Read more

Husband has a red rash. Under arms and top of arms. Now its going down his arms and top of hands. We thought it was a reaction to fleas.

Various causes: Flea bites are usually on the lower extremities because fleas cannot jump much higher than one foot. The rash can be a contact dermatitis, drug reaction, hives or eczema flare. See a physician to evaluate and get a prescription cream to treat. If it is itching, taking a non-sedating antihistamine may be helpful as well. ...Read more

I have red bumps on my both handas nd wrist and now it is spreading my other hand. They are not itchy, different  sizes. Don't think allergic reaction?

Hand rash: Diagnosing a rash without a picture is very difficult, and what you're describing can be many things. We think in broad categories - like an allergic reaction to something you might have come in contact with (sometimes hard to remember exact thing), a mild eczematous reaction (even if it doesn't itch), a fungal infection, bug bites. Let your doc know if it's getting worse! ...Read more
