Help!????

Anonymous

I took my child to the doctor over two weeks ago when this started. Originally the ER doctor said is was diaper dermatitis- four days later I took him to see his doctor and they said it was Hand foot and mouth. It’s been 15 days and it doesn’t seem to clear up around his legs feet and arms - nothing on his face or mouth or chest or back... does anyone have an ideas what it could be? I’m worried for my little man.. not sure what to do.. 😫😓😣 (His feet are dirty please ignore his dirty feet)

    Was he sick prior to these showing up? My son had HFM... high fever and what seemed like a viral infection. He got over it within 3 days. Then one week later he had the sores on his feet. My husband and I got it too but we had sores in our throat. I went to the dr because there was strep going around and it was taking me the longest to get over it. Apparently kids recover from these faster than adults do. It took a while for the sores on his feet to go away. The first couple days he complained they hurt but the second it started to look better he stopped complaining. Is your son complaining about them?

    😕 I’m sorry. Did they offer any ways to help with the scratching? Or did they ask you to follow back up with them if it didn’t get better by a certain time?
