Hello, I am a grandmother, my grandchildren have been diagnosed with HFM is there anything other than giving them multiple Oatmeal baths and Tylenol? Can adults be carriers of this, how long does it stick around in a house once the children have left? I have Rheumatoid Arthritis so I have a compromised immune system. Can adults get this I've heard mixed answers.View Thread
Hello my grandson has been recently diagnosed with Molluscum Contagiosum he is on predisone augment en , hydroxyz HCL 10MG. We were expecting our daughter with her two kids and,our son's son they are afraid to come and stay at our house, they have read information online and it it says that it lives in our home for up to a year now my husband myself his mother and brother all live in the our home and no one has presented with it or all the people we come in contact with at our jobs, he is in a daycare and it seem's that's when all this started, since Jan he had chicken pox, then hand foot & mouth which I had sent in for information for the HF&M they say this is part of the pox family, how concerned should we all be? I'm sending you a few pics of his rash, bites Well I tried to attach the pics but not sure how, he is 4yrs old this is extremely itchy no fever. Thank you,Concerned Grandma View Thread
Yes I do, So should people not be in contact with him or our home? Dominic is due for his school physical and that will include another chicken pox shot correct? Will they give him shots if he is still has this? Since its from the pox family if kids have had there chicken pox shot why can they get this? What as far as cleaning all services can I do to remove germs? As I said our daughter and her children came for a visit from MT & ND we are in Rochester, Ny & I need to know how contagious him and our surroundings are. My other daughter has 3 girls 6,5,21/2 lives local and they have not caught anything. Does swimming in a pool spread this to others?
