My girls weren't itchy once the sores came out. There can be plenty of things that cause it though. I would recommend seeing a GP to make sure he isn't contagious.

Dont send him to preschool until you can get the all clear from a GP, they will just send him straight home again.

Regardless of how your child feels tomorrow he shouldn't be going to school until he get the all clear from a doctor. If you can't get in to see a doctor then mum or dad needs to stay home with your DS until that can happen.
I hope you little munchkin doesn't have HFM. My boy had it. Started off as 'pimples on the bum' and progressed from there. His spots weren't as bad as what your little ones look like though.
Fingers crossed the doctor gives your DS the OK...

Looks like school sores, you'll need a drs clearance before going to school. Good Luck x

Look like scratched mozzie bites to me. Definitely not HFM. Also really doesn't look like school sores to me as there's no yellow scabbing/crust.

My son had hand foot mouth disease last year, there's blisters in the mouth, tongue, little bumps on the palm and feet and no where else.
He also has school sores, they weren't itchy but looked like the rashes in your sons arm. My son had to be hospitalised when the sores got worse, which could've prevented if the doctors have treatment earlier, we were sent home 3 times, doctors keep on saying there's no treatment and have to waited out. In the end antibiotics could've been.
