Hi,You may be right. Most probably it may be hand,foot and mouth disease. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. As it is viral disease,it is self limiting condition. It may clear in few weeks. Symptomatic treatment may be considered. A course of antibiotic may be given to prevent the secondary bacterial infection. Hope this helps.Dr.Ilyas Patel,Dermatologist
