Took ibuprofen now my temp is norma for 3 days now, but now facial rash&scalp also, red itchy spots on palms of hands & soles of feet. What do I do?

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. ...Read more

My infant and toddler both have hand foot & mouth. Are they still contagious once the spots appear? Also my infant is 9mths old. Dangerous or ok?

Hand Foot and Mouth: Hand, foot, and mouth disease is usually not serious. The illness is typically mild, and nearly all patients recover in 7 to 10 days without medical treatment. Complications are uncommon except for dehydration.

My 9 month old has hand foot mouth disease and has large blister looking spots all over his hands/fingers. Is there anything I can do?

Keep 'em clean: This is tough - I hope your baby feels better soon.

Don't break the blisters. You may want to try to keep gloves on his/her hands. If the blisters break, don't pull off the skin - it will help protect the raw skin underneath. If there is any sign of infection (redness, pus, pain), see your pediatric care physician. ...Read more

Tiny red spots back of 3 yr old throat, tummy pain, high fever, no appetite. Doc says hand foot mouth. But what else could it be and can I look out 4?

Strep throat: Strep usually causes abdominal pain; but if he had a strep test and it is negative, likely the doctor is right and it could be hand-foot-mouth. Feed soft lukewarm foods and plenty of room temp liquids, nothing scratchy, acid or carbonated and use Acetaminophen for discomfort--should be better in a few days.

How likely am I to be diagnosed with ms? I originally went to the doctor for numbness and tingling in my hand and foot and have gotten severe pain in my opposite arm and hip on two occasions. One white spot was found on my brain mri, minor degenerative c

Hard to say: One white spot on brain MRI is nonspecific. If it is in a particular area (corpus callosum) it would be more concerning, otherwise it could have been from prior brain infection (encephalitis) or trauma (shearing injury). Your symptoms are a bit more worrisome. Perhaps a spinal fluid analysis will help. Neurology consult would be useful. ...Read more
