Doctor :   Hi,
Doctor :   Dr XXX here
User :   Hi
User :   I have a question about my daughter.
Doctor :   Please proceed
User :   My 14 year old daughter developed red, circular itching bumps on the insides of her hands yesterday. Today, they have spread to her feet, and are incredibly itchy; the base of her index finger is swollen. We visited a pharmacy doctor (not a nurse) and she diagnosed it as ringworm. She prescribed an antifungal cream. However, she now has a slight fever and feels very exhausted. Two days ago, she woke up with an extremely stiff neck, and has head pain when standing up, which disappears in a few minutes. She has a slight runny nose but no coughing, and slight nausea. The symptoms may be unrelated but I am concerned nevertheless; she has orchestra practice tomorrow, which she cannot skip, and since her fingertips are swollen, they hurt when playing an instrument. In addition, she has kendo (a sport) practice tomorrow, and they practice barefoot in a gym. Is it something serious, and should she stay home tomorrow?
Doctor :   Yes, she has to stay home tommorow
Doctor :   I am thinking possibility of viral fever
Doctor :   which do commonly present this way
Doctor :   she may need a detailed physical examination to confirm the diagnosis
Doctor :   consult your GP for the same
User :   Ok I will
User :   Thank you very much!
