Question: My baby is 7 month old baby girl. My baby has blisters in both the feet. It's white blister. I doubt it's hand foot and mouth disease. What can I do to heal it?
Answer: Hi dear,
Yes,it could be hand foot mouth disease if it is spreading to hands and inside mouth.Hand foot and mouth disease is a viral infection.which is quite common among kids under 5 years old.kid can get this infection,as many times he's exposed to it,so no immunity against it is made. It is highly contagious,and only a proper hygiene can prevent it.
1- keep the baby thoroughly hydrated,by breastfeeding / formula feeding/ water
2- keep feeding light and easy to digest foods like,rice kanji,rava kanji, khichidi,banana,idly etc
3- apply calamine lotion on the blisters
4- give paracetamol if fever comes
5-plenty of rest and cuddle
1- always wash hands while holding the baby,as you could be the carrier of infection
2- donot take the kid outside ,as it might spread to other kids
3-donot force feed the baby,the appetite would be very down now
There is no medication as such to treat it fast.it stays for a week or so .let th baby heal completly before letting her play with other kids.unfortunately there is no vaccination for it.this infection is in rise now a days.
