Strange rashes on my hands and feet. Got some firm little reddish spots that don't break. Is that hand-foot-mouth?

Possibly. Hand-foot-mouth disease is a common viral infection which leads to blisters or red spots on the palms, soles of the feet, and in the mouth. It can be associated with some fever. The condition is self-limited, lasting about a week. The only treatment is symptomatic. Check with your doctor if is continues.

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.

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. It is possible to have both.
Other considerations. I agree that your child may have Strep, another viral infection or a possible pulmonary infection which can cause abdominal pain and fever. If the symptoms do not improve or if they persist, I would advise a follow up visit. Your physician may obtain a throat culture for Strep. Hand, Foot and Mouth disease is a viral illness which improves with time and usually resolves by the 10 th day.

No. If the rash is related to the hand foot and mouth disease and is crusted then no worries. Usually when blistery rashes are crusted over it indicates healing and the "scabs" just need to heal. If this rash is not related and is not blistery and is different, then have him seen as it is hard to diagnose a rash without seeing it.
See note. No. Typically the incubation period for this virus in children is only a week and is not transmissible after such time. Simply allow the virus to run it's course and use disinfectants regularly throughout the house.

Unlikely. HFM can have spots/blisters in these locations. However, the presentation usually starts with small blisters in the back of the mouth, followed by distinctive blisters (oval and grayish) located in other sites. The fingers/hand/wrist are common as are the foot and ankle. The peri-anal region is also common. The rash you describe is non specific and could have been many things, HFM is unlikely.

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.
