Although he's over the worst now, I've just seen some new blistery spots on DS's hands and feet. Can anyone tell me how long this can go on for? Thanks!

Afaik most people don't get pox on palms of hands or soles of feet and day 10 is a loooooong time - as I'm sure you know!

Do you think it could be hand foot and mouth?

Thanks for the tip. They're certainly smaller than the chickenpox spots he had on his body and HF&M spots are quite little aren't they? Will get him checked out tomorrow.

My DTs definitely had LOADS of spots on hands and feet, and yes, they were some of the last to develop....and took ages to go away, their hands looked blistered for ages. They both had it terribly badly though and ended up in hospital. Probably worth getting checked in the morning if still more are developing.
