The picture you have shared and the description of symptoms suggest possibility of a Hand Foot Mouth disease(HMFD). It is a viral illness and usually resolves by it self in a week's time. No medications are required for cure. However anti allergy and paracetamol can be given for itching or pain due to rashes. Maintain hand hygiene. Wash your hands and clothes so that it doesn't spread to other children in the family.
