    How is it treated?
    Hand-foot-and-mouth disease does not usually need treatment. Most cases go away in 7 to 10 days. You can use home care to help relieve your child’s symptoms.

    Offer your child plenty of cool fluids. Your child may also have Popsicles and ice cream.
    Do not give your child acidic or spicy foods and drinks, such as salsa or orange juice. These foods can make mouth sores more painful.
    For pain and fever, give your child acetaminophen (such as Tylenol) or ibuprofen (such as Advil). Do not give your child aspirin. It has been linked to Reye's syndrome, a serious illness.
    To help prevent the disease from spreading:

    Teach all family members to wash their hands often. It is especially important to wash your hands after you ch

  • This is a fairly common virus. Although it sounds like worse since it is called a disease, it is just like a cold or flu virus. I agree with mom2twoboys41. That is the advice we hand out a daycare when it goes around.

  • Hand washing is very important, another thing to be careful with is toothbrushes. They need to be kept away from the toilet to prevent any splashing they may come in contact with when the toilet is flushed. Also make sure toothbrushes air dry between usages. When using toothpaste make sure not to touch and of the bristles on the toothbrush. Poor babes, it is very painful.

  • There isn't much you can do. Give lots of cool fluids and things like yogurt that are nice and soothing to eat
    Tylenol and Motrin for pain,
    You could has your doctor if they could give you magic mouth wash... every doctor has their own "recipe" for it but it has things like lidocaine, mylanta and benadryl in it to help with the mouth pain.
