my 2 yr old son came back from playgroup with a runny nose last week. The mucus was very green and he has been running a low fever off and on for about a week now. A couple of days after the runny nose we noticed his hands, specifically his palms became red and itchy. Then appeared small blister type rash, first around his pams, then over a few days this has spread to his elbows, knees now his whole body (although it is most noticable on wrists, torso, armpits).
Antihistamines have had no effect - the rash seems to flare up when is temperature is high, and putting his hands in cold water seems to cure his itch (creams don't seem to help).
He has plenty of energy, good appitite still, but the itchy hands are becoming a problem, We think the rash might be a symptom of an infection (due to the mucus colour) but he has only just finished a course of antibiotics for strep throat (amoxycilin).
Any advice much appreciated!
