My dd has picked up hand, foot & mouth from day care. I did a quick google and it says that it is virtually untreatable. Is there anything I can do?

Unfortunately no, just keep her comfortable. Thankfully it doesn't last too long.

Panadol, nurofen and lots of cuddles. It's a really horrible disease.

My DS had it last week, keep any eye on the sores, if they go yucky go back to doc, DS' got infected & he had to go on antibiotics... Keep an eye on her temperature. DS ate frozen fruit, jelly, ice cream, frozen veg, custard for a few days, they can get a really sore mouth so arm yourself with plenty go 'soft' soothing food! Plenty of fluids aswell :-)

PLEASE keep a careful watch on your little one and seek medical advice if she becomes more unwell. I have a friend whose two year old daughter died from complications of the Hand, Foot and Mouth virus. It's not common, but it CAN be fatal. PLEASE keep an eye on her, particularly for vomiting and fever.
