Q.

Sores

Hi
My 2 years old son has yellow sores under his feet, I saw them today. He can''t walk because he says they are painful. What is the cause and how can I treat them.

Thanks

Paediatrician

This could be a virus infection called hand foot and mouth disease. Please take your son to a paediatrician for a check up.
