Hi, It seems to be HAND FOOT MOUTH DISEASE. Not to worry, kindly give plenty of fluids, fruit juices to child and if required fever medication. There is chance of mouth ulcers too. But its important to visit doctor, to rule out other causes. this forum is only for advice, prescribing medicine on this forum , is not advisable according to me, .

Looks like HFM hand foot mouth disease to me. Supportive care. Calamine lotion for topical application. Multivitamin syrup 5ml once daily.
