    hi Vivian,
    like tat u better dont let ur baby go infant care for e timebeing if u can get other caregiver to help u....
    last yr when my boy(2yo) is down with HFMD n really quarantine him in e room with me cos i still has a 5mths old baby girl... so e girl will stay in e living room with e maid n at nite also sleep there with e maid. whenever i need to feed my baby(breastfeeding) i will wash my hands then change my clothes or bath myself before i really carry my little girl.... was really a terrible period to live in fear tat e baby will get it.........
    I got to know from e experience tat there is a 10days incubation period therefore even e person has it now he/she can appear normal n tat's e frightening period tat others can get it unware and continue spreading..... Just like my boy got it from my cousin during 1 of e wedding dinner but he still attend sch for e next 3 days until he is down with fever on thur then we stop him from going sch... but PD didnt suspect HFMD cos only got fever n 1 ulcer in e mouth n no other symptoms until sat then rashes/ulcer start to come out but too late liao... some of his classmates got it from him... then e sch got to close a few days.....

    Hi those who got it, can describe the symptoms? I am a mum with a 21months boy, I just have been suspected 90% sure of hfmd and now I cannot even see my boy, so sad, but my red spots on my hands are very itchy, hfmd are not itchy right?

    Anyone can advise? I also have sore throat on just 1 side of my throat, doc says mouth full of red spots but I no ulcers.

    does anyone know anyone with young kids affected by HFMD in the sense that their kids' sch/kindy/childcare kena shut down for 10 days due to outbreak.
    then they headache to figure out wat to do with their little ones (who are not sick, it is other sick kids who got the sch shut down) since they have to work etc.
