  • My youngest ds has gotten them twice in the last 6 months. According to the doctor they are very contagious and you have to wash everything in HOT water. Our case was weird though because we have no idea where he could be getting them and no one else in the family has gotten them from him. Use the meds the doc gives you as directed and wash everything and it should clear up within a few days. I think it took ds about 3 days to clear up but we noticed a difference the next morning.
