Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease does not have a specific treatment and usually resolves on its own within 10 days. Your doctor will tell you measures to undertake to help counter the symptoms of the disease, till it passes away.
Self-care measures you may take at home can include:
Giving a lot of cold fluids to your child during the illness
Avoid giving spicy, tangy and citrus juices and food items as it will agitate the sores
Medicines, as prescribed by the doctor at the Children’s Hospital Service Line to alleviate the pain
Preventative measures should be taken to avoid this disease. Inculcate the habit of washing hands in your child. Do not let your children share toys amongst each other when one if infected.
