Have any of you (not your children) had Hands, Foot, and Mouth disease? I'm prettttty sure that's what I have. My hands & feet have little raised bumps and it's blotchy red and it itches SO BAD. I read that in adults it's extremely itchy however in children it's not. My kids have had it and it never really bothered them at all. If you've had it what should I be putting on it to stop the itching? Hydrocortisone should work right? I can't take Benadryl because it makes my heart race, is there any other kind of medicine that's like Benadryl? I read there isn't really any treatment for it and just to take tylenol for the fever but I haven't ran a fever I only have the rash and it's driving me up the wall.

Claritin, Zyrtec and Allegra would all work since they are antihistamines. They won't work as well as Benadryl but they will work.
