    It doesn't look like hfm to me. And the absence of fever and blisters would suggest something else as well.
    How long has this been there? Could it have been from something your lo has eaten?

    Has he been vaxxed for chicken pox? My son had spots like these last month and it turned out it was chicken pox, due to him having the vax, the dose was really mild and only 12 spots appeared. 6 in his face.

    Poor DH didnt fair that easy, poor guy!

    Noticed the patch in the corner of his mouth yesterday and today there are a few more around the rest of his mouth. Seems to be only where his dummy is. He hasn't eaten anything different in the last week. None on hands or feet. He had the chicken pox vax at 18 months (now 22 months)

    I was just about to ask if he uses a dummy, looks to me like what i used to call drool rash, my LO's used to get it where the dummy sits when they are drooling while sucking. I have used paw paw cream on my LO's. Doesn't look like anything nasty to me.
