Hi i do not think she is suffering from hand foot mouth disease.because there is no fever in that disease.there is no description of lesions over hand and think it is ulcers due to fever or apthous ulcers.herpesshould be ruled out.only firts three days is infective stage for that should be in the person for atleast 2 -3 days before it gets infected to others
