Have just read report of the lady who has contracted H F M.
I recently have usually babyminded my Grandson about once weekly only 2 weeks ago he came out in the HFM rash and blisters and was really unwell. My Daughter contacted her GP and was told that once the rash is out he would no longer be infectious and it was very rare for adults to actually get this if they did usually in mild form.
So hence i looked after him whilst the rash was present, last week i Had a really sore throat and felt tired and acheing, and over the past 3 days my fingers have swollen developed a rash on the palms of my hands blisters on my wrists and ankles, this morning it was very painful to stand when i got out of bed,
This evening have developed blisters inside my mouth and inner bottom lip.
All in which contradicts that Adults get this very mildly.
I read with interest the previous ladies report and sounds like we both have had a rough deal of it.
I am very curious to know how long i should wait before being in contact with other people, as there are so many different reports.
If anyone can enlighten me on this please add a comment.
i wish everyone a speedy recovery who also contracts this by no means mild illness.
