    Red face :( what the crap is this???

    A couple of days ago i woke with a sore throat, didnt think much of it til later on when it was getting worse. had a look in my throat and saw a blister type lump next to my dangly thing in my throat. Had a feel and yep it hurt like mad!! 2 days ago i noticed 2 blisters on my palms and one in between my thumb and one on my leg, they all hurt like crazy. So we come to tonight and i notice have blisters everywhere!!! They all hurt and all lokok the same. some are singular and some are in clusters of about 3 or more. The Ones j noticed a few days ago are still there and still hurt. Anyone had this before or know what it might be???? All over my body

    I dont know anything about it, but my first thought was hand, foot, and mouth disease.

    I think you should visit a doctor at your earliest convenience.

    I was going to say the same thing. It is highly contagious as well.

    You poor thing. Adults are generally much less likely to contract it than children, but when they do I gather it's more painful than when little ins get it, especially the mouth blisters. I hope it passes quickly.

    Sounds like hand foot and mouth. DS1, DP and I all had it while I was pregnant last year. I didn't get them on my feet and hands but the sore throat was terrible!! I'd never really even heard of it before.

    Could also be Impetigo, aka School Sores. My DD2 is just getting over a bad case. No idea where she picked it up from, but like you they appeared out of nowhere overnight.

    Definitely see a Dr because you might need antibiotics.

    you ladies are so wise. We Dont need doctors when we have you guys! I have hand foot and mouth disease and so does my 1yo dd. Bub has been incredibly sick for a few days but i didnt think that my blisters would be related to her being sick. I just thought she had heat rash and nappy rash cos it didnt look the same as mine (except 1) im not as bad as dd. she has fevers and vomiting and other symptoms so its a pain there is no treatment. Glad we got a diagnosis tho thanks for your help!!
