  • yes- its one virus of a family of viruses called the Coxackie Virus Family, look it up for a little more info, but the general rule is once you have had one you will eventually work your way through the other viruses. Make sure you have your little one taking acidophulous to keep their good bacteria built up and fighting the bad bacteria. It will also help if you avoid wheat, sugar and dairy products b/c the bad bacteria feed off that stuff. Hope this helps!

  • My son did when he was about 6 months old and in daycare. It didn't seem to bother him much.
