Hand & foot rash: Many skin conditions can involve hands & feet.

These may have fever, also eczema, psoriasis, etc. Please see dermatologist. ...Read more
I had a lot of alcohol and in the morning I found the palm of my hands and sole of my feet to be swollen and itching. Could this be alcohol allergy?
Unlikely: Ethanol is a sugar. Humans do not demonstrate allergies to sugers, but rather, to proteins. Alcohol is a vasodilator and this could be what is causing your symptoms. Regardless, although it seems fun, try and reduce the binge drinking because it is taking a toll on your health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My girlfriend has had problems with the right side of her body it gets swollen... Her right hand gets swollen and her right foot... Why?

Hypertension also accelerated artery disease, so treatment helps both. A baby aspirin daily will help. Untreated your risk for heart attack and stroke go up. Take family with you and be well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 1 yr old has swollen bumps all own her leg, on her foot, and one on her hand. Wasn't swollen yesterday. What is this?
Are they hives?: Without looking at the bumps, it would be impossible to make a diagnosis. So these are my guesses. (1) hives due to some allergy, (2) insect bites such as mosquito bites, (3) scabies, (4) a virus infection, (5) hsp (though she is a bit too young), (6) itp (immune thrombocytopenic purpura). These are some potential diagnoses. If the bumps bother her, please take her to a doctor. You could send pics. ...Read more

My nephew is showing signs of hand, foot, and mouth disease. My daughter just came to me with a very swollen under eye, any relation to HFMD?
No, but facial: swelling may be. Infra-orbital cellulitis was caused by Haemophilus Influenzae Type B bacteria before HIB vaccines. If your daughter had 3-4 HIB vaccines, starting at 2 mos., she'd be protected. "Strep" & other bacteria can also infect the infra-orbital space. Trauma or allergy can cause it. If not red & tender, apply cool packs & see her MD tomorrow. If red, hot & tender, seek care tonight. ...Read more
