1 year old child, small fluid-filled red bumps on feet, hands. Treatment?

Hi. My name is XXXXX and I m trying to figure out what is wrong with my son. He is 1 year old and just developed small red bumps on his feet hands and other places of his body. They are round and I can tell they have a liquid in them because they are raised. Can you help me figure out what I need to do to get rid of them.

Thanks for posting your query.

It seems like an exanthematous rash which occurs commonly with viral flu. I do not know if he has fever too along with this.

In most infants and children the treatment is symptomatic. You can give him anti-syrup containing cetrizine for the lesions to subside. Also, apply calamine lotion to the affected areas topically.

If there is fever, also give him acetaminophen syrup.

He should be fine in a couple of days.

Hope this helps.
