My 21 daughter had very red shiny palms and bottoms of feet for 7-14 days which was painful to hot/cold temp changes and she could not stand for long periods in one spot due to pain on bottoms of her feet. Blood tests were ran and all was fine for inflamation, thyroid, infection, etc...and gave her a wk schedule of prednisone to eliminate pain. Possibly thought to have raynauds, administered norvac (sp?), however, she's since quit taking that at her own disgretion. Then she ended up w/influenza symptoms w/in a week after prednisone. On the 4th day of her fever, which ran 5 days 101-103 w/some drop to 99-100. Her hands had started peeling. Now - approx 2 wks after her hand had started peeling, her feet are now peeling. What kind of virus could this be? I heard of something like viramelegia. I cannot spell that and I can't remember for sure exactly how that was pronounced. What do you think?
