Has anyone had to deal with hand, foot and mouth disease?

I'm wondering how long the contagious stage is? He saw the dr today and the dr said a couple of days but I would like something more definate. Like 2 days or 3 days.

  • Anon: no you are not. You are an idiot.

    OP: I believe the time frame is 3 days, that seems to be what kids in the preschool I taught at were out for when they had it. Call the health department and they will be able to tell you for sure.
