He has a temperature of 38 and a very faint rash on his hands and feet. Is this hand foot and mouth. Do I need to taking him to the doctor if it is? Any advise would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance.
An irritated area following a tick bite is usually an indication that the tick's mouth parts have been left behind in the skin. Unlike a splinter, they are barbed and often don't push out of the skin. This causes periodic irritation. If it is really bothering your child, your GP can remove the skin containing the mouth parts by numbing the area with local anaesthetic first. BADA-UK http://www.bada-uk.org/ has lots of useful information about tick bites and preventing them. Remaining mouth parts don't increase the risk of Lyme disease but compressing the tick's body or agitating the tick, which can regurgitate infective fluids, can. Unless your child is showing signs of ill health, it is unnecessary to test for Lyme disease. Tests also have limitations and can produce both false-positive and false-negative results so should only be used in conjunction with an assessment of the patient's symptoms and history of tick exposure.
If my child has hand foot and mouth, can I pass on to other parents which would endanger there children? Thanks brad

My five year old son has recurring mouth ukcers and has done for about five months. He has about two a week and they affect him eating and brushing his teeth. Not sure wether to take him to docs as have read that they could be the cause of iron deficiency, or if there is no proof of this.
