Hi moms - My daughter was just diagnosed with hand, foot & mouth disease. We'd noticed a really faint rash showing all over, but no fever. We learned it's contagious so are keeping her away from other children and any shared toys/play environments until it passes. Would love your advice on a few things, if your child has had it -
1) How old was your child when they got it?
2) How long did she or he have it?
3) Any ideas for playtime and exercise where she won't encounter other kids?
4) Any tips on helping her sleep through it, and generally feel better?
