Hi my name is Rebekah and I'm new here. I have a 4.5 year old in preschool and an 8 months old at home with me, both daughters.
Here's my problem. Oldest DD has been indirectly exposed to chicken pox and directly exposed to hand foot and mouth disease in the last 7 days. I know chicken pox has a 14 day incubation period, but I have no experience with H/F/M disease.
Would it be possible for her to have BOTH of these at once? What is the incubation period for H/F/M disease and what will be the first symptoms? Since she was directly in contact with the child I'm more worried about that.
Are either of the dangerous to my 8 month old?
Can some one clue me in to the symptoms/treatments/dangers of having one or both of these in any child?
