We have adopted a Mexican baby who has had tiny, round, pustules on her hands and feet since we picked her up from the orphanage. The bumps break open before healing and then more are formed. They have now moved to her legs and hands. We have been to several doctors here in Mexico and she has been treated for Hand, Foot, & Mouth disease, Scabies, and a vague "skin sensitivity" by a dermatologist. Cortisone does clear it up, but then it returns. The skin is not itchy. No one else in our family has contracted it. This has been going on for almost 4 months (that we know of). Ideas, anyone?
