1 Bump

hand foot mouth virus

Does anyone no how long the bumps last from hand foot mouth virus? My toddler got the bumps on her skin last monday and they have spread from her feet to all over her legs, butt, stomach, hands, arms, cheeks. And it's really bad and was wondering when they will start to disppear.

  • Thank you. It's been over a week and it doesnt seem to be getting any better so I hope it clears up soon. Poor girl looks miserable.

  • It has been a long time ago since my youngest had this, but it seems like it lasted about a week, but the mouth sores lasted a bit longer.
