My ds is 6 months and has a horrid case of hand foot and mouth - he is doing ok but where he already had some eczema its getting really sore and angry.

The Dr saw him early in the week when it wasn't so bad -any suggestions please ?

No suggestions but both my kids have hand foot and mouth and its a nasty illness. My youngest can only drink through a straw and isnt eating he is two . What a shame for your poor LO I hope he is better soon .

Thanks sweetness - it's horrible isnt it... Being stuck at home with them not going on outings doesn't help either !

My DS suffered terribly with this, he was I'll for 3 weeks and it's supposed to be a mild childhood illness!

Sorry don't really have any constructive suggestions either, just sympathy.
