My grand daughter who is 3 years old  picked HFM. She has fever  and lot of rashes and blisters on her body .Doctors say there is no medicine for the disease except that we need to control her temperature and this will go in next 7 days or so  .She is now having difficulty in eating not even having her milk which she used to take three times a day in addition to other food. It is  now the third day .

Any advise for the worried mother ?

    The doctor is completely right. It’s a horrible disease that just has to run it’s course. Just make sure you don’t get it. It’s even worse when adults get it.

    She probably has blisters in her mouth which is why she isn’t drinking.
