Default Hand,Foot and Mouth=Dads beware!

My 18month daughter got it,symptoms were very minor,obsolete. Has teeth coming in figured its teeth,wife takes her to Dr. And diagnoses it hand foot and mouth. Just keep hangs washed ,Lysol ect. That morning around 4 am throat starts feeling sore,get off at 7 ,hit the sack around 10 wake up to 103 temp. Anyways on 3/4 day of this fun ride my hands feel like they are on fire as well as the heels of my feet like I'm stepping in glass,minor blistering but wtf batman this crap hurts. Of course no sympathy from the wife,thinks I'm embellishing, any of you guys ever had this?

Yes, it's not nice. Usually self limiting quite quickly. Sounds like you have a pretty bad case.

Get well soon, Tony.

I got it a year ago from my then one year old. She was fine in a few days but I got beat up pretty bad. My wife had it when she was little so she was fine.

Both my daughter's got it and gave it to me. It was a pretty miserable week. Same symptoms as you, high fevers and blisters, especially on my feet. A couple of weeks later, all of the skin on the bottom of my feet started coming off. The really thick calloused skin. That was painful. A few weeks after that my daughter's lost all of their toenails. It was pretty bizarre.

Daughter had it, took it like a champ, when she's sick you'd never know it she's so good. I didn't get it and now looking back I didn't take any/many precautions.

This, minus the google images. I keep my head firmly in the sand on stuff like this like a responsible grown up.

Yup, my 1 yr old got it last year, wife got it from him right away, about 3 or four days later I got it, except I got it 10 times worse than they did. I was stuck in bed for 2 days. I'm gonna wear a full HAZMAT suit if my son gets it again!!!

All 5 of us got it when the twins were small, about 5 years ago. My hands hurt me the most. Nasty.

LOL. Germ bags. I️ think all 3 of my kids got it at some point. I️ got it one time. Not horrible but not fun. Sitting awake now with a cold one of them just passed on to the rest of the family. Lol. Wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Kids are certainly more resilient than their adult counterparts. My youngest just had the Flu, other than not wanting to eat, temp spikes to 104, vomiting and a little crankiness from rough sleep he was happy most of the day and wanting to play. Give that to an adult and you will find a 200lb baby laying in bed all day not wanting to do anything.

I'm gonna resurrect this because I remember reading about it last year when our son was only 4 months old and thinking it sounded like major suckage.

Well, he got it last week. Took it like a champ and was better within a few days.

Sent him back to daycare this past Tuesday and I stayed home to work in case he started running a fever again (he was fine). Well later that night I started getting the feeling that you KNOW something is coming on.

Wednesday I woke up and felt like crap...that afternoon is was full on flu like symptoms...ice cold while wearing 3 sweatshirts and shivering uncontrollably covered in an electric blanket...followed by sweating profusely with a fever of 104.

Thursday the bumps started on my feet and hands. Not terrible...just feel like blisters and very itchy. But my THROAT!!! HOLY CRAP...MISERABLE!!!

Now sitting here Friday night and that's really all that remains, otherwise I'm 100% but am struggling to swallow even ice cream.

​​​​​​The struggle is real... Parents beware of your little germ bags!

But ya know what...he is all better and is currently sound asleep. I'll take it.

Our little guy is just getting over it as well. He had a fairly bad case, blisters all over his hands and feet—fortunately he stayed in pretty good spirits. I got a mild case of it, some blisters on my feet. But like you, the worst was my throat. Hurt to swallow. Wife never reacted to it. Glad to be on the downhill side of this.

Yeah it hasn't phased my wife...which is good because it would have been REALLY tough if we were both useless and had a toddler to entertain.

Coxsackie virus. Talk about a full scale biyatch... and there are at least 8 major strains. You can collect them all!
