Hand foot and mouth disease

Postby Finman0507 » Wed Jun 15, 2016 2:25 pm

Hi everyone

There is an epidemic in our town at the moment in my town. They call it the "Hand foot and mouth disease".
Apparently it looks a lot like chicken pox and has the same symptoms.
Does anybody know how to prevent or treat it?

I have two small children in a creche and I am so afraid they might pick it up.

According to the CDC the "Hand foot and mouth disease" is very contractible and dangerous to children. I don't know much about treating it, but one way to prevent contracting it to your children is to avoid skin-to-skin contact, thoroughly wash everything you use including clothes, sheets and utensils. It's best if you keep different glasses, forks and plates that only the kids use, just to be on the safe side.
