What are these spots? (Pics)

I just thought DDs eczema was flaring up yesterday but she's just got home from school (first time I'd seen her today) and her skin is like this. She had mild sickness on Saturday but after a few hours was back to her normal self again.
She had chicken pox a couple of years ago. I think she may have caught it again? She's absolutely fine in herself right now, apart from being very itchy.

They look sore and it will be horrible for her if they are itchy. Have you shown them to a pharmacist? They will be able to tell you if you need to see a doctor. I hope your DD is ok today.

I wouldn't have thought eczema either OP, something about how the ones on her wrist are too sore looking and not dry enough looking, plus with the ones on her stomach, look more like a rash than eczema. Did you glass test them? How is she, did you find out what it is?

I called 111 last night and they weren't too concerned and I glass tested and that was ok.
I'm waiting for a dr to call me back now as some of the spots are very weepy and angry looking.

Your poor DD. I hope the doctor is helpful.

Update: it's hand foot and mouth. Looks worse than it is and she's fine to be back at school in the morning smile

It is good you know what it is. Glad your dd is ok and back at school.

Ah glad you found out. Of all the things you worry about that wouldn't have even entered my head to be honest!

One of my poor DS got this when he was about 10 years old, his face looked horrific! And they were all in his hair.

Thankfully it cleared fairly quickly and no scars. Glad you got a diagnosis. So many weird things us humans can get!
