My son who is 3 1/2 has just been diagnsosed with hand foot and mouth disease, I am completely freaked out by this although I have looked it up and he only seems to have the mouth sores and I can only see one on his left foot, I just need to know what is expcted to come and for how long does this last and also how long is he contagious? He has no fever and only had a slight fever yesterday but that is now gone. The Dr also took a swab of his throat but I wont get the results of this tll Thursday.

he only had the blisters in his mouth till today, I have noticed that they are now starting to appear on his toes also, I just feel so useless, he seems to be in so much pain and there is nothing I can do for him. I hate watching my baby suffer like this.

That's been going around in my circle of friends, too. :( So far as I can tell, it's a couple of days of unhappy kid, especially if they get the blisters in their mouths. The worst part is that they're hungry but it hurts to eat, so just give yogurt or other soft foods. I've managed to avoid my son catching it, but as far as I know it's not too bad, just a slight fever, etc.
