Customer Question

Hi my baby is 5month old and 6.2kg now. I have found some red spots in her torso since two days ago. She doesn't have fever (37.1 C yesterday morning, 37.2 C this morning. normaly her temperature is 36.8). The red spots started 10 Sunday afternoon including torso's front and back but those were disapeared during Sun night and appeared again next morning more and in differet area. And tiny bumps are spread much more. Those red spots and tiny bumps spread even more on her back last night. She eat well (formular) but sleeps more. Wee and poo are normal. She sucked (not eating) on boiled egg white part last Saturday. She attended her baby class where they announced later one of babies got hand food and mouth disease last Tue. Finally, she hasn't had 16weeks injection yet due to either injection was not availble or she was addmitted to the hospital for a week on her 18-19weeks because of chest and urine infection. Antibiotic treatment was done for her for a week. I would like to know whether it tells any disease. Thank you for your reaponse in ahead.
