Posted on Tue, 8 Aug 2017 in Skin Hair and Nails
Question: Several days ago I felt a small bubble growing on my genitals. Checking it from time to time it seems to have increased in size. It doesn't really hurt but feels uncomfortable. Yesterday I discovered another small bubble on top of my right foot. Last week my grndson visited his doctor and was diagnosed as having the foot and mouth disease which was transmitted to my daughter in law We al live in the same home. Would you please give me advice as to what should I do for this condition. Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Folliculitis or hand & foot disease, upload pictures

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have gone through your complaints and it could be either folliculitis which is inflammation of the hair follicle or lesions of hand and foot disease.
I would recommend you to upload the photographs of the affected areas so that I can have a clearer picture of the condition and can guide you accordingly.
Regards
Dr Asmeet

Brief Answer:
Either friction blister or diabetic bulla, cortisone cream

Detailed Answer:
I have reviewed the attached photograph.
It seems to be either friction blister or can be a diabetic bulla.
It doesn't look like hand, foot and mouth disease.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like cortisone cream on the affected area twice daily for 5-7 days.
