Brief Answer:
This looks like hand foot mouth disease

Detailed Answer:
Hi...I feel by what you quote he should be having a - Hand Foot Mouth disease, after seeing the image you have provided.

This is one viral illness among all other exanthemas which can cause fever followed by rash over palms and soles and buttock.

It is a self-limiting disorder and itching can be really worrisome. I suggest you use any over the counter antihistamine if you have one with you now. You can use Hydroxyzine at 1-2mg/kg/dose (Maximum 10mg) every 6th to 8th hourly for 7 days.

This can even cause some peeling of skin in the next 4-6 weeks and do not worry about it.

Brief Answer:
Apply Zytee gel for oral ulcers

Detailed Answer:
Hi....in hand foot mouth disease, oral ulcers are quite common. That is the reason why kids do not eat well.

I suggest you use Zytee gel for the oral ulcers thrice a day 30 minutes before feeds.

I am a 36 years old female with more than ten years history of chronic bloating and chronic constipation . Different tests showed no abnormalities in my bowels, so Gastro suspected IBS-C and just recommended to manage with diet and laxative (Milk of Mg, Miralax, etc). I tried drugs like zelnorm and amitiza w/o success. Lactulose made bloating even worst. Also, off-label use of a drug similar to colchicine , which name I can t remember. This one seemed to work but stopped it because I was afraid of its teratogenic effects. High-fiber diet does not make a difference. Eighteen months ago, I gave birth, and bloating and constipation were a little better after delivery. About a month ago, constipation and bloating have been terrible again, and started to have symptoms like an UTI. The OB-GYN diagnosed me with Interstitial cystitis . I am currently, taking Elmiron, Hydroxyzine , IC-friendly diet, and having a series of bladder instillations. I feel better regarding my IC symptoms, but noticed that whenever the constipation and bloating are bad, IC flares up. Currently, I am having liquid bowel movements (with Milk of Mg) and noticed my breath and stool smell like a chemical substance. Bloating is still there, even if I have a bowel movement, and aggravates along the day. I am following the IC-friendly diet, but there are some things that are IC friendly (ie wheat), that aggravates my GI problem. I read about a low FODMAP diet, but I would like to consult a Gastro about these because I am feeling like doing both diets is very limiting. Also, I would like to have things under control as I am thinking of getting pregnant again. I am worry about nutrition, and gaining weight during pregnancy. I will see a gastro in a couple of weeks, and want to bring up this IC diagnosis, and possibly evaluate for SIBO or celiac. No Dr has ever mentioned any of these conditions, but I read that IBS-C and these have overlapping symptoms and you can end up being misdiagnosed. Can you please provide an opinion? I need some help in the meantime.

I had a rash on the back of my leg that was extremely itchy. I went to the Doctor and was prescribed 3 different creams and nothing is working. The rash moved down behind my knee and a little lower. Those 2 rashes seem to be not as bad now but just below my bikini line on the opposite leg now has a hive looking rash. I have SLE and take plaqenil and have for about a year and a half now. The creams I was prescribed are Fucidin H, Betadern cream and I can t remember the 1st one but it was not as strong. I also was prescribed Hydroxyzine HCL for the itch to take at bed time. I also had shingles 2x last year and was vaccinated any ideas?
