Hand foot & mouth is hard b/c it lasts so long & can be contagious even after symptoms are gone. I basically go off of the fever. Fever free for 24 hours & able to participate fully in group activities. Make sure dcb is washing hands frequently, especially after using the potty, before and after eating, after wiping nose, etc. Make sure you're washing your hands well when working with him as well. I also wipe down the toilet with Lysol wipes often she this is going around as it can be passed through stool for weeks after symptoms disappear if I remember correctly. I've had kids with spots for 3 weeks from hfm. Its annoying as heck, but typically its relatively mild. Good luck to you!
