Hello, thank you for consulting with us. the type of disease you are describing that it started with spots around his mouth and he has sore throat with lumpy glands and then he started with rashes on his legs and knees, it can be hand foot and mouth disease only. if it , it can be healed on its own in 1 week, but still for symptomatic relieve you should consult a General Physician.
