Starting on Monday my baby started running a fever of 102. It kept on for 2 days ! He was non stop crying and crying did not want anything . Wouldn't drink or eat . I would lower his fevers with Tylenol and baths . But back up right after the Tylenol would ware off! Finally Tuesday afternoon we went to the ER. And they said he had sores in his throat witch was the reason he wouldn't eat or drink and then they said it was cause by Hand Foot and mouth disease. After that Tuesday night. On Wednesday morning he woke up with more blisters on his legs and butt what could I use for that rash that the Hand foot and mouth is causing to slow it down. The only thing the ER persrcribed me was medicine to numb the sores in his throat. So he would be able to sleep and eat comfortable. His rash is nearly braking out what could I use to calm down the rash

Dawn, yes once I gave my son that prescribed medicine the doc gave me. My son started drinking his milk ! He drinks perfectly fine now and his mood is way better the medicine is every 6 hours and it works amazing trough the night he sleeps peaceful! And I finally get to get some sleep. Now all he has its the rash on his body and I'm sure their still in his throat too. But the medicine numbs them !

Thanks minoo, I can't believe there's nothing to calm down the rash on the baby's body of not even a vaccine . It doesn't seem to itch my baby or hurt him but its just uncomfortable seeing him grow this rash more and more .
