So my son was diagnosed with hand foot mouth disease this past weekend. The symptoms started saturday. Hes got a bad case....its covering his legs and diaper area. He looks horrible! The dr said as soon as the fever is gone he is no longer contagious. I called the daycare and told them what he had and even described the eash. They said that as long as he doesnt have fever he can come back. Hes been fever free today. We are keeping him home again tomorrow. Heres my question: would you send your child to daycare if he still had the sores(scabbed over now), or would you keep him home? My husband and i both work full time, but I want to do whats best for my son. What wohld you do?
