Signs and Symptoms of STDs: Rash on Hands and Feet
A rash on the hands and feet can indicate an STD. This is often a sign of secondary syphilis.
When Syphilis Causes a Rash on Hands and Feet
Syphilis is a progressive, bacterial STD. Syphilis symptoms occur in stages; the primary stage is marked by sore or chancre. If syphilis is not treated in the primary stage, it will progress to the secondary stage which causes a rash on the hands and feet. This rash is typically rough, rust-colored, and will appear on the palm of the hands or soles of the feet.
