Brief Answer:
Can you please upload the images

Detailed Answer:
Hi...by what you quote, I feel but it could be a pyoderma or skin infection or viral exanthem like hand foot mouth disease. I suggest that you upload the images of the skin lesions so that I can guide you better. I am asking for the images because skin conditions are always diagnosed and treated after seeing them directly.

I have a few questions for you -

1. Was there any fever with this skin lesions?

2. Are they itchy?

3. Is Anybody else in the family have similar problem now?

Please get back to me with answers and also the images as requested.
