Ok second time around...My child has Hands Foot and Mouth disease. Does anyone know if letting him swim in our own PRIVATE personal pool at home is ok? He still has a rash but no fever and is playing around like normal

  • As long as there isn't a fever he isn't contagious. Hand foot and mouth disease is only contagious when they have the fever and then they get the blisters. If he is feeling fine then let him have fun and enjoy being a kid in the summertime.
