Help this Mama!

A friend just texted asking for a remedy for hand, foot and mouth. Her two year old has it all over. If you’re not familiar with this, consider yourself lucky. Kids under five normally are the ones who get it: blisters all over and a fever. Sucks.

So, folks… any home remedies?

    My understanding is there is no remedy for it – some tylenol for pain and some saltwater rinses and let it run its course… I’ve heard that, like chicken pox and poison oak, oatmeal baths can help with the itching and healing. Good luck to your friend and little one!

    My oldest had it when she was about 3. Heck if I remember any treatment, if at all.
