why cant this be hand foot and mouth disease cause of coxsache
Also thought it was Hand-foot-mouth an RNA virus but I did consider Herpes. Changed because I thought Hand foot and mouth would be more common.
Appreciate the effort but this is far too long to be useful.
hungrybox is a freaking hater
@drachenx haha, nah, coming back to this i realize i was probably over-geeking lol
Chancroid is described as an ulcer.. whilst in this question they mentioned "vesicles". Pretty much only herpes is vesicular
They mentioned ulcers too. I chose chancroid as well, couldn't find a clue to rule it out. Also thought "discharge" was pointing you towards a bacterial infection. But guess I'm wrong :)
I think NBME/USMLE writers make the assumption the patient is in America unless specified otherwise. Chancroid is not common in the US. If the question stem mentions a developing country, then chancroid can make your differential list.

OR = RR when you are dealing with a RARE disease.
