My kids had a play date with my twin cousins who are 18 months on Saturday. The twins were well and healthy and played just fine. Well on Sunday they both came down with a fever. Then today they woke up, both fevers are gone, but one of them has blisters on his feet and in his mouth. He is going to the doctor today, but we all pretty much figure they have hand, foot, and mouth disease, although we cant figure out why the other twin has no fever and no blisters yet. Well yesterday my DD came down with a fever, she still has it today, and now my son has one too. I have been giving the tylenol. I have heard that these blisters/sores that come with the hand, foot, and mouth disease are really painful. Can you give me some insight on what I can do to make my kids more comfortable when the blisters finally come? Is there mild forms of this disease or does everyone pretty much get the blisters? Thanks!
