I come Up in my feet a red itchy rash with a blister on my toe,I've been to the doctors a few times first they told me it was chill blains an gave me anitibiotics to help clear the blister. I've finished the course and the blister has gone, but the rash has appeared to have spread. It had spread to my hands, and a few over my knees. I went back to the doctor an they said it was hand foot an mouth, but over the night it's spread to my buttocks, my thighs, my legs, my arms, top of my neck and I can hardly walk as all my muscles ache. They are red spots with whiteheads.. Could you please tell me what you think it is

Hello Amelia,
Welcome to healthcare magic
Read your history, It could be hand foot and mouth disease. It is a viral infection and therefore you can have malaise and muscle aches as well. Only thing is you don't seem to have mouth ulcers which is very common in HFMD. Lesions are usually seen over hands and feet, but buttocks can also be involved. Again thighs, neck and arm is not usual but possible. Did your doctor rule out Chicken Pox. Chicken pox vesicles will have an umbilicated centre (depressed).
It is better to take a dermatologist's opinion. Drink plenty of fluids, take rest and take antipyretics like paracetamol for myalgia an fever.
Hope this helped.
Take care.
