Hi everyone

 

We have one confirmed case of hand, foot and mouth and another suspected case possible two.

 

Now been on the hpa site and states that there is no exclusion period!!

 

Should I exclude or allow children to still attend playgroup as long as they are well enough???

When my little boy had it our doctor advised that the incubation period was 3-5 days BEFORE the ulcers/spots appeared and that he could still attend school, the school confirmed they were happy to take him as long as he was not unwell in himself. The ulcers in his mouth were very sore, so he did have a couple of days off. But he would not have been excluded.

How funny, I have just been told today that one of our childrens siblings has it. Been told much the same really, most infectious before anything comes out. I haven't actually seen nay cases of this for a long time, years in fact. Am I right in thinking that the skin on palms of the hand peel, or am I thinking of something else?

They get small red spots on hands and feet and in their mouths. Ones in mouth look like ulcers after a few days and the ones on hands and feet look like small blisters. Also run high temps and loss of appetites.

 

Spoke to local sure start teacher who said to exclude until all symptoms had disappeared.
