Duration of HFMS rash in ADULTS.

10/04/2001

Question:

I appear to have hfms. I have lesions only on my feet and hands. None in my mouth. I have had the rash for 14days now and it has exacerbated in the last 4 days to the tops of my hands and the wrists. No signs of improvement yet--In an adult, how long can this last? No one in my family has it to include my 2 toddlers. My MD did dx HFMS. Any pictures I have seen seem minor compared to the approx 200 blisters on each hand.

Answer:

Please clarify what you mean by HFMS.
