So a lot of you know my 7 month old has hand foot and mouth virus. Its been since Thursday and his fever is down to 100.5. His bumps look like blisters all over his legs and arms. There are a ton and they look so bad. He is also cutting his top teeth and has a sinus infection. He's on amox and I have been giving him Tylenol, grip water (he's tummy seems to be hurting bad) gas med and teething med. He just screams and crys non stop. I am about to cry, im a single mom and he isn't sleeping at night I got one hour sleep. I don't know if the bumps itch or hurt. I don't know what else to do! I try to nurse.him and he screams...he nursed a tiny bit. I bounced him and walked around with him. I have rocked him. I am sitting in the car with him after driving forever to get him to sleep since he is overly tired. I called the hospital they said call his Dr so I did then he said to.call the hospital! He said hfm disease is normally not all over the legs. Ahhhhhh! Im just bawling. I am so tired and feel so bad for my baby. Idk what else to do for him.
