Misdiagnosed My Son

I think my son was misdiagnosed with Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease. We went to the Doctor last week due to a rash of small watery blisters on his legs, arms and a few on his torso. The DR said it was HFM and said my son had lesions in his throat also. She said the sores should start to get better and etc. It has been a week and now many new blisters are appearing on his chest and thighs and now he has diarrhea. Other then the blisters and diarrhea he is acting normal. I made an appointment for him to be seen by another doctor. But for those who have dealt with HFM....Does it sound like HFM?

Here are two websites that I looked at and didn't see anything about diarrhea on there! It's good you're getting a second opinion. Do the bumps/blisters itch? It said that with HFMD they shouldn't itch!

No itching and it doesn't bother him at all.

When my son had HFM  there were very little bumps on their hands or feet but their mouth, lips and troat where covered with painful blisters.   It doesn't sound like HFM to me.
