Skin hives/ulcers/blisters

Hi all,

I wonder if anyone could shed any light on this. About 2 weeks ago, I was (we think) stung by a wasp. This resulted in a visit to the Doctors who prescribed me hydrochortizone cream. I didnt go to the Doctors till a week ago and in the time since the sting I developed a few sore blisters on my hands, they look like uclers from your mouth but on my hands.

He gave me the cream and sent me on my way. The cream has been helping the sting itself but sadly the ulcers or whatever they are have gotten worse to the point there is now approx 50 on my hands and it is making it very painful to do even the most simple tasks. I am going to try and get an appointment at the doctors in the morning but wanted to see if anyone had any ideas what it could be as my doctor is often quite dismissive.

This pic is of the sting from about a week ago :

These 2 are my right hand which is the worst affected :

My mouth is also very sore and has ulcers as well if that helps.

Thanks

Paul.

Hello,
From your symptoms it looks like hands, foot and mouth disease. Hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) is a human syndrome caused by intestinal viruses of the Picornaviridae family. It is extremely uncommon in adults; however, still a possibility.

Without external examination, diagnosis is tough. So please consult a dermatologist and get yourself properly evaluated.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
