HMFD's day 5 and counting

Posted , 1 user is following.

I'd like to share some light to HMFD cases which ive been reading alot.

My 3 yrs old daughter contracted the virus during our recent trip to a kid's playground in a hotel (which i believe was the place that started it all to the irresponsible parents taking sick kid to a playground). On the first day she had high fever at 38 C, We took her to a doctor and the doctor prescribed a paracetamol for her and asked us to wait 3 days. On the 3rd day, she didnt want to eat as much as usual and had some visible red spots on her hands,thighs,private part, buttocks. We immediately took her to another doctor a specialist and checked her mouth and saw alot of ulcers inside, we were told she got HMFD a highly contagious viral disease. She said antibody will heal the virus but she prescribed a formula for her mouth so that she can drink as much liquid and eat again. The formula acts as an numbing agent; thankfully she is back to her normal activity after choking the formula for 3 days. At this moment, her red spots are gone and shes back to full health physically but we were told that the virus is still contagious and it can live up to 4 weeks.

Both my wife and I spent alot of time nursing for our daughter because we were told the virus only attacks children under the age of 10. We had no fear of being caught sick at all, thats when we were wrong; After my daughter's 5th days of being sick i had a super headache that i thought someone split my head open; couldnt even sleep and my temp was at 38.3 C immediately went to an ER, they gave me strong antibiotics (which was useless) and they told me i had tonsil infection and paracetamol to help with the fever. Swallowing was like being sliced with knives in the throat, On my 3rd day I recovered from the fever, but red spots beginning to appear on my hands and fingers nothing on my feet. I went to another doctor and she prescribed Isoprinosine and Acyclovir topical cream both are anti-viral medicines. After taking them day to day and now the 5th day.

I notice the red spots are getting worse it multiplies more on fingers and now my feet also blistered. Walking with winching as i go through each day. My question is there anyone having the same prescribed medicine and became worse?
