Hey Guys,

I'm a 30 yo male and I've been diagnosed with HFMD twice now as I panicked and ran to urgent care. I was prescribed prednisone for 5 days the first week and then they gave me a steroid cream...I have a terrible rash all over me. I believe it is red and fading, but I cannot tell completely. I've been putting cortisone on it. My 

My question is...can anyone give me relief that this is normal? I kee reading 7 days of 2 weeks. I'm still covered in these spots. I'm my throat still hurts and I'm concerned I will have permanent scar damage all over my skin. Also, should I keep applying cortisone or just let it alone? Please let me know. I'm embarrassing by how gross my arms and hands and feet look. I just need some one to tell me there is light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks guys. This thread has made me feel better😞
