  • I would take her to a doctor. My niece gets a type of viral infection and it'sonly on her feet and lower legs. They look alot like blisters, and are VERY painful to her... I read somewhere that letting them run around barefoot (my DS plays in the backyard barefoot everyday almost) they are more exposed to infections...

  • Check the inside of her mouth and her tongue. Does she have blisters there? Stop popping them ASAP. It sounds like HFM and it is highly contagious!!!!

    You can take her to the doctor but if it is HFM there is nothing they can give her. Is she running a fever? My daughter had this awhile back and her temp was 102-103 for a few days.

  • I agree , stop popping them you are only causing her more pain. Take her to the doctor for treatment.
