    Blotchy blistery rash on hands and feet, lesions, swollen lymph glands. Is this viral infection?

My daughter had a blotchy blistery rash on her hands and feet and a couple of lesions showed up on her face. She also had swollen lymph glands at her throat . I passed it off to something she came in contact with where she rides horses, but now my son is showing similar symptoms. I m wondering if it is likely to be a virus of some type. The rash hurts rather than itches.
