Skin Sloughing

The skin on my son's hands and feet turned hard and leathery and sloughed off.  He also developed dark pigmentation on his knees which came off also.  He has eczema, but this is clearly different.  In the past couple of months he has had swollen lymph nodes, swollen lips, sore throat, as well as the skin condition.  All of the other things occured at different times, not together.  He also has had periodic head aches and stomach aches.  My doctor said she thought the sloughing hands & feet were a reaction to strep, but she felt the knees were something different.  I went to see a dermatoligist who said she disagreed, but didn't have any answers and felt it was a viral reaction.  I asked about Kawasaki syndrom (syndrome), Steven's Johnson, and toxic shock and she felt it was none of these.  Any ideas?
