That's not a good sign. Is he having fever?

As long as no fever, should be ok. I don't recall HFMD causing swelling, but I just had googled and it seems that people do report swelling limbs and throat.

Just a little read of rare complications. Not to scare you, but better to be aware of the symptoms.

He is drinking and eating normally, though the throat is giving more pain than yesterday. He has been not gargling salt solution or mouthwash or taking manuka honey diligently.

On the whole, looks alright, other than the discomfort.

Today is the 3rd day.

Will we see improvement from tomorrow onwards?

They say the 3rd day is usually the worst. So things will get better after today... :snuggles:

Already told him to take it whenever he feels like a sore throat coming up, but he always does not do so, only come to tell me he has sore throat when the condition becomes serious.

We just applied the calamine lotion a while ago. Gosh, his feet are swollen now.

If I were to kena it, I want to go stay in a hospital.
I don't believe in Manuka either as it wasn't effective for me. My Dequadin lozenges work wonders for any scratchiness of an incoming onset of sorethroat. $5 plus from Guardian pharmacy.

The hospital won't take you in me thinks. HFMD and chicken pox are the kinds that the medical practitioners will just tell u to go home and wait it out, because that's the only thing you can do. When it happened to my firstborn I was like :mad:... Like whuuutt? My daughter is in sheer discomfort and that's all you can say? Lol! Mommy syndrome. I eventually learnt it IS indeed the only way. Apart from the rare complications, most times sufferers are merely told to go home and rest.

For me, I find it is important to monitor the fever.

Elder boy will be on the road to recovery in no time at all, Jennifer. :hugs: You rest too when you can, ok?

I wont have anyone to take care of me should I be down with it. Better to stay in the hospital when meals are provided, laundry are washed and I do not have to do household :wink:

Rest well. Immunity can be compromised during periods of stress or inadequate rest. Not so obvious when younger but can really feel it now, for me at least.
