Something You Won't See
These skin lesions were preceded by symptoms of abrupt high fever, aching, and vomiting. The lesions started at the mouth and face, then moved to the arms, hands, and rest of the body over a week. The palms and soles are affected, and the lesions are all about the same size. In the most common type of this disease, these skin lesions will fill up with pus and either remain discrete or merge together into sheets.
