Itchy blisters on hands and mouth, urine and blood tests say abnormal pH levels down. Advice?

Hello Dr.Grief, I went to the doctor yesterday because I have small itchy, blister like spots on my hands and feet . My doctor said it could be hand, foot , and mouth and they took a urine and blood sample. After I left the office I started getting somewhat similar little blisters around the inside of my nostrils. This morning I got the lab results back from my urine dip/micro and the following are the results. Color/Clarity clear yellow Sp. Gr. 1020 pH 5.5 Leuk + Nitrite n Protein n Glucose n Ketone n Urobili n Bili n Blood tr Micro Epith/hpf 3-5 WBC/hpf 0-2 RBC/hpf 0-2 crystals - mucus + Casts - other - Result: abnormal I have no idea what any of that means except that my pH went from 8 to 5.5 from Saturday to Monday and I m abnormal. What does that all mean? I m very concerned and I can t wait for my doctor to call later, I d rather know a little more now. Thank you very much.

Hi thanks for your question. The way u have described the small blisters on hands and feet and later inside nostrils and itchy fits to hand foot and mouth disease. Its a self limiting viral disease and generally require symotomatic treatment like calamine lotion for local apply and antihistaminics for itching.
The urine pH varies with the type of food and fluids intake. I feel you should not worry about your urine pH result as othet parameters are within normal limits..

I wish I have cleared your doubt and decreased your anxiety.
