I am literally at wits end! I am begging for anyones help I would appreciate it so much!!
In september (2015) I contracted HFMD, starting with large (r than normal) red blisters with white in the middle, on my hands and feet, with dehydration, mild temperature, tiredness, a lot of itching, and a bit of a sore throat, but hardly an issue around my mouth just one tiny bump and one tiny "leaking" lip area.
Three doctors saw me and all said, yep its hfmd it'll go on its on time don't worry! 10 days maximum.
Here I am almost three months later with reocurring rash (and lip leaking) which over time the size of the individual bumps have lessened, however, I can rest and be good to my body for a few days, and then if I have to wake up early for work or go out with friends, it'll start to creep back. (but noting that never has the rash completely dissapeared)
as the rash goes back then i can start to get those flu symptoms but minimally. I swear its acting like herpes??? as if its chronic! :'(
I have to start my education in a month and I feel incredibly alone, I saw an additional two doctors that have never seen a case like this lasting so long and nobody knows what to do.
Since i've got access to scholarly articles I read up as much as I could and from the limited info that was there, I decided to talk to my doctor to give me Acyclovine , which is usually used for herpes simplex, shingles etc, and although it is known to not have the same effect for coxsackie, a study and a case study indicate that it may help.
But really, this has turned into an absolute nightmare and if ANYONE else has experienced anything similar I would absolutely love to hear what happened to you and what you did, or if you have any advice.
Thank you so much
