DS(5) D&V, high temp and sore hands

My 5yr old came down with a particularly nasty bout of D&V early hours of Sunday morning. Couldn't keep anything down. Last night he started getting a temperature.

This morning the D&V has stopped, but he is dehydrated and has a temperature of 39.6 and is very lethargic. He is bright red, purple tinged cheeks, and is complaining his hands feel wet but hurty.

Calpol and lucozade sport has helped perk him up and the temperature has now finally gone down.

I phoned the nurse and she said it sounds like Hand, foot and mouth. But I can't find anything linking D&V to it. D&V has also doing the rounds at school (again)

Does anyone have any ideas?

Many thanks smile
