On his hands.. I apologize for the crappy picture but its the best I could get! The only way I can think of to describe how they look is when you get a blister and it pops, they're just little circular raw pieces :-(
He doesnt seem to be too bothered by them but he did flinch a couple of times when I went to clean them off (they had some hair stuck to them from being on the floor)..
He is almost 7 1/2 months and just started "crawling" yesterday.. Lol by crawling I mean he drags his little body across the floor.
Did your baby get these when he/she started crawling? I'm afraid of them getting dirty and maybe infected by crawling around on the floor.. Should I try and get a bandaid to stay on??
Update: There are no sores on his feet or in his mouth. His temp is 99.5° (rectal) but he's had an ear infection so that is actually lower than it has been in the past week.. He has been on Amoxiciline (sp?) for about 5 days now. My apartnent floors are all carpet by the way...
And for those of you saying hand, foot and mouth: What will the pedi do?? The link someone provided says the is no treatment or vaccine. I will have to take him no matter what because he has eye surgery tomorrow and I'm sure this is something they'd like to know before putting him under! I'm just curious as to what the pedi can even do foe him...
