I have a friend whose two little boys got it and it hit them so hard that the kids were literally throwing themselves into a wall in pain and frustration. The mom called it a disease straight from the pit of hell. But some people get it and its not that big of a deal. Strange sickness that can be mild in some and hellish in others.

Fortunately my wife and I avoided getting it. My little boy just got over it a week or so ago and he was pitiful.
The sores all over his body from head to toe were awful. Looks to be quite a bit of scarring and his feet are peeling terribly now.

Wow, sounds like this stuff Really sux.

Raised 4 kids and never heard of it.

Counting my blessings.

Feel sorry for you all that have had or are currently having to deal such an illness.

What’s the cause of this illness?
And don’t tell me a virus.

Is it due to genes, bad health issues, bad hygiene of other children, what?

Stay the hell away from petting zoos. Farm animals are not pets. Aways seems to go around in October and November. When the fair is in town.

It's a virus. One kid gets it, maybe their parents didn't wash them properly or whatever, brings it to daycare where it spreads like wildfire. Kids are all the time putting their hands in their mouth.

We had a notice from our daycare that a kid had it, but by that point our son was already showing symptoms so we knew what it was. Then a few days later he was better and now I have it.

It sucks, but isn't terrible. I'm praying I'm on the down hill side. There's no treatment other than time and symptom management for comfort. My hands feel like I've been using an axe all day without gloves...and my feet feel like I just hiked the Appalachian trail in a brand new pair of hiking boots. Without socks.

But my throat is feeling better and no sores in my mouth. Our sons was a very mild case so fingers crossed mine is too.

I got it several years ago. Figured it was from the shopping cart handle at the grocery. Religiously wipe them down every time now. Buddy was with me shopping and making fun of me for wiping them down. 6 months later he calls me and apologized. His boy caught it and gave it to him. It’s brutal. I thought I had athletes foot cause my feet were burning so bad. Got home and sprayed on medicine which did nothing. Just went down hill from there.

My son has had it 4 times from the nasty kids at his daycare. I told them they'd be hearing from my attorney if it happened again. They finally got rid of the nasty kid that was bringing it in. That kid was a walking petri dish. She brought in a ton of funk including lice and bed bugs. So glad she is gone. He has Strep throat at the moment.

I've avoided but with 3 boys they have had it more then once. Pediatrician says it most often comes from boys digging and playing in dirt and then putting their hands in their mouth. Been lucky its never been passed around the family.

However, last month I got strep throat for the first time since I was in elementary school. That was horrible. Swallowing my own salavia felt like I was trying to gulp down broken glass, so painful. Can thank my older boys for passing that one along.

Hope you feel better soon.

Just got past this a couple weeks ago. My daughter (3) never had or showed any symptoms of having it so Iím not sure how I got it unless from a friends kid. My hands actually just started peeling a few days ago where I had spots/bumps. Throat hurt like hell during this time.. Hope to never get it again! Although with my luck Iím sure that wonít be the case...

My daughter got it a few days after visiting the Dr for a one year check up. Nanny and it was cold out no interaction with other kids so 99% sure it was from the visit. My wife was still breast feeding and she had it when she was young so besides some visible marks and a few mild uncomfortable days my daughter got over it fine.

It hit me like a ton of bricks. Sickest I can ever remember for an entire week. My throat pretty much swelled shut. I was in bed for two entire days. No major marks on my skin but it was horrible.

Daughter started daycare a year ago at two. This summer we received multiple warnings from the school about HFM. My daughter had a few red dots on her feet and hands twice this summer but no fever or any major symptoms.

Daycare just had 2 confirmed cases, so keeping the little guy home the rest of the week.
I remembered this thread.
Watching for a fever, and hoping he doesn't get it.
