    Incubation period tends to be around 5-7 days. First signs tend to be irritability with possible low grade temp. Few days later blisters in/around mouth, on hands and feet and sometimes nappy area Contagious till blisters dry out. We are in the same boat at the moment. The little ones from my mothers group recovered quite quickly. Off there food and feeds for a day or two. Good luck
