W/ hand foot mouth, pediatricians, is it normal for my 2 yr old to develop a rash all over the back of his legs and butt? Small red dots. Treatment?

Yes: The area around the bottom and upper legs is a common additional site of hfm, it just didn't make it to the label when the pattern was being named. If that's the only site and there are no blisters it could be something else. Te variability of hfm is quite diverse, with some having only one area involved. ...Read more

I have rash all over now also on right palm....Thought it was lotion allergy. But its been 3 days rash not gone?

Dishidrotic eczema?: Good morning,
your rash on hand could be due to contact dermatitis, an allergic reaction to chemicals that you came into contact with, or it could be what is called dyshidrotic eczema, a blistering disease of palms and soles. It is more common in occupational settings, with atopic dermatitis, and on contact with irritants such as chemicals and allergens. Less exposure, barrier creams are helpful. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with strep throat, however I have now noticed a painful and itchy rash all over my palms and the soles of my feet. What is this?

Allergy: I would want to know if you had a CULTURE or other test to prove Strep throat. Then, I would want to know WHAT MEDICINE you were put on. It's possible you're having a drug allergy to say 'amoxicillin' or whatever antibiotic you were given. There could be other phenomena going on, so I would CALL the doctor ASAP, since you don't want this to get worse. Sounds bad enough as it is. Hope you get help ...Read more

Itchy skin rash all over body (except for face, neck, palms and soles) for 14 days. NO fever, NO flu-like symptons, NO lymph node. Can it be HIV ARS?

Rash: It sounds more likely that it is an allergic reaction to something. The fact that it is not on the palms and soles of your feet makes other bad things less likely. Skin rashes are hard to diagnose and the diagnosis depends on where the rash is, the color, whether there are blotches, raised bumps and many other things. You can buy benadryl (diphenhydramine) in the pharmacy for itching and if it persists see DR. ...Read more
