“My 11month old and 2 and a half year old boy have picked up the hand, foot and mouth virus! It is horrible and painful and I hate that I can’t do anything to help them. Have been to the doctors and looked everywhere online to try and find anything I can do to help them but so far have sounds nothing. Anyone had any experience with this and found anything that helped?” Do you have any help or advice for hand, foot and mouth problems?

  • It’s extremely contagious and very common in Asian countries. All you can do is ride it out. Lots of ice lollies for comfort, as there will be lots of ulcers in the mouth. Traditional chinese medicine can help, but I’m not sure if you’re willing to try it.
