My 3 year old daughter has had a itchy rash on the bottoms of her feet for over a week. Now it's on the palms of her hands. It's flat red spots.

Many Diagnoses: It is hard to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to actually see it. I recommend taking her to see a dermatologist so that they can help your daughter get rid of it. Hope this helped :].

Why does my son have red itchy spots on the palms of his hands and soles of his feet?

Hand and foot diseas: It sounds like he's got hand and foot disease which is a virus that lasts for about 7-10 days.

Could be fungus: Fungal infections of the feet can easily spread to your hands if contact was made with your feet. Between the toes tells me fungus. Fungus grow in moist environments. There are various agents used to treat this, but an important consideration here is your pregnancy.

Hand & foot rash: Many skin conditions can involve hands & feet. Some of them are erythema multiforme, that looks like little targets, usually triggered by a cold sore eruption but could be due to medications, a viral infection called hand, foot & mouth disease that has oval blisters surrounded by rim of red on palms, soles and in mouth. These may have fever, also eczema, psoriasis, etc. Please see dermatologist.

Hand foot and mouth?: It's very uncommon for adults, common for kids. In the last few weeks I've seen several adults with hand, foot, and mouth disease. It's an uncomfortable but not dangerous viral illness, improves within a few days, but if your symptoms, worsen, change or fail to improve you should be seen.

Small red bumpy spots on hands feet very itchy then dry blisters started feet then palms now arms and legs severe itching?

Red bumps on arms l: It seems like you have some kind of ongoing contact dermatitis and you need to be evaluated by you physician. If it was viral illness which can present like you describe, but that clears up without any tratment. In your case description you got spread to your arms with otching which makes me think it is some kind of contact or allergic dermatitis, you need to see your doctor.

Allergic reaction: If the rash appeared after taking Ibuprofen and not before, then it can be an allergic reaction to it. Some people develop hives from such medications called nsaids. You may need to take an antihistamine to help you with the rash but I would avoid all nsaids, until you are evaluated by a doctor. If you need to take something for a fever, from now on take Acetaminophen instead.

Possibly......: W/out seeing them, it could be so many things. Maybe chigger bites or flea bites or allergic reaction to seasonal things that have started to grow. Internal allergic possibilities too! Shoe it to a Dr or at least a good pharmacist for opinion. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and/or an OTC itch ointment. Launder sheets & socks in very hot water/bleach. Try diluted vinegar on soles. Best!

Allergy/Insect: From your description appears like allergic spots. But check to make sure he does not have any insect bite marks. Try topical Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) by mouth. If not subsiding try steroid cream 1% or 0.5% (tiny amount). If both not helping consult physician.

Eczema: Probably dyshidrotic eczema. The blisters tend to open and then the underlying tissue feels raw usually we use topical steroid cream but the otc steroids do not penetrate well. Go check with your doctor or dermatologist.

I have a cut on the bottom of my foot, I put a bandaid on it. Later that day I took off the bandaid. I see that there is a big red itchy spot.

I have a cut on the bottom of my foot, I put a bandaid on it. Later that day I took off the bandaid. I see that there is a big red itchy spot.

Adhesive reaction: If the shape of the red, itchy spot is close to the shape of the bandaide, then this is most likely an allergic reaction to the adhesive. If you applied an ointment to the cut, it could also be a reaction to that as well. Unless your cut was dirty and not cleansed well, it is less likely to be infection developing that quickly. Blister bandages use a different adhesive and could work well.

Where on the foot: Is it in the forefoot, midfoot or bottom of the heel. It will need an evaluation by a dermatologist. Ask your physician for a referral.

Spot on toe: JOANNE W ~ do you have ticks in your area? Do you have any cases of Lyme disease there? This lesion needs to be seen to accurately diagnosed, but if you have known Lyme in the area, this could be a target lesion. Go and see a doc to be sure. Thanks

Hard to diagnose: Without more of a history and an examination. How long have you had this? Was there any injury or environmental exposure? Cortisone cream may help itching but see a foot specialist.

A 1000 word picture.: Unfortunately, trying to identify the nature of skin conditions or infections is extremely difficult to do without actually seeing it. Let's face it, a lot of these conditions have the same general appearance. A real time exam or at least several high quality images are necessary for an accurate opinion.
