Hello again,

I was waiting for response from you.

Hand foot mouth disease is viral infection.
The rash may appear in buttocks, legs, genitalia or rarely in other areas.
Mouth ulcers can be very painful and there can be difficulty in swallowing.
So please give sips of fluid to keep good hydration.
Viral infection usually takes its course.
Please keep her at rest.
In the absence of very high fever or dehydration, it will not be necessary to take her to hospital.
You can take her to doctor in the morning.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating.
Wish her healthy life.
Regards.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
