Yes , then with the history provided and the lesions , it does look like a resolving case of HFMD.

It is a self resolving condition.

You can add supportive management like Vitamin C intake , Application of Aveeno skin relief cream.

She does not need any prescription medication for now.

Do let me know if you have any further queries.
