Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease is Rampant!

Yesterday we were at the pedia because my teenager had a high grade fever last Thursday, and on and off on Friday. Then suddenly, red spots or rashes came out. At first, I thought it was due to the fever and he was hot as lab furnaces. Nah, just exaggerating, but he was so hot, I panicked. If you knew his condition, you’ll panic too.

Anyway, soon more rashes came out and spreading, he couldn’t swallow well (even water) plus he has sores inside his mouth. So, we decided to pay the doctor a visit. I had a hunch but would like to be sure coz I told my husband, if I am right, it’s contagious.

When we were in the doctor’s clinic, I heard the doc mentioned to a patient about HFMD or Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease and that she had seen several patients with the same disease already. So, that means, it’s spreading in the same area as mine.
