When tofu boy was down with hfmd, he only had three ulcers. I got the virus from him and guess what? I must have thousands on my feet, hands and inside my mouth. Those on feet were nothing much. Felt like walking on pins.

Those on hands were fascinating. Clusters of tiny bubbles! Those in my mouth were the most vicious :cry:
Yucks!! That's scary. HPB should have put you on their posters then. Sure would make people a lot more aware of HFMD immediately. :nailbite:

Probably should check with the boarding school if there could be more sick students there. That's where he would have closer contacts with other kids.

Elder boy has reported his case to the House Master while I emailed the school.

I am ok.

His face is not spotless now, cant really walk w/o feeling pain on the soles, cant write too much too.

Luckily he still can swallow food.

Is there any way we can make those rashes less painful or heal faster?

As long as he is not feverish, he should be fine. I don't think there's any way to make the rashes less painful. Maybe numb it with ice? We didn't dare to put anything on the rashes when my daughter got it many years ago.

He can try paracetamol for pain and fever relief. Mouth ulcer gel on the mouth ulcers just before eating may help. Avoid acidic food and drinks as the ulcers will sting more. If there is any sign of pus on external ulcers, antiseptic cream may help.

so far, he can tolerate the pain in his mouth.

Just that those on the hands are causing some inconvenience as he cant do too much writing. There are a few mock exam papers to practise on before the prelims.

Elder boy refuses to take pain killer, not even during those days of dental braces tightening.

not even soaking the hands or feet in a tub of diluted Dettol?

We were fortunate that my DD didn't have many rashes. Never thought of the dettol idea. It may help to disinfect the external skin, but it may also sting if the wounds are exposed. I thought slmkhoo's idea of antiseptic cream makes better sense. Or soak feet in ice water?
