Comment from: Contagious infection, 3-6 Male (Caregiver) Published: March 09

My child developed fever on one fine day afternoon after we put him in a play school. Two or three blisters appeared on the elbow of his both hands. We thought it was some sort of allergy that will go after a little time but didn't know about its severity. My son's hands, legs (knees), buttocks, and mouth were fully covered with blisters the next day and new ones continued to appear for the next three days. Hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) requires medical assistance and care, and definitely it takes a week’s time to get healed totally.
