Toddler son dipped hands in rainwater and licked them. Has had on and off hiccuping and throwing up for 3 days, no other symptoms. Chance of parasite?
Very doubtful!: It would be most unusual to contract a parasite from rainwater. Parasites usually happen after international trips in areas where parasites are endemic. Symptoms usually are bloody diarrhea, sometimes anemia. Diagnosis by stool studies and blood tests. Hiccuping not at all related. Vomiting more likely a viral illness -- treat with clear liquids. ...Read more

My infant and toddler both have hand foot & mouth. Are they still contagious once the spots appear? Also my infant is 9mths old. Dangerous or ok?
Hand Foot and Mouth: Hand, foot, and mouth disease is usually not serious. The illness is typically mild, and nearly all patients recover in 7 to 10 days without medical treatment. Complications are uncommon except for dehydration. Hand foot and mouth is contagious roughly for a few days before the symptoms appear untill they start to feel better and the spots and ulcers have healed over, so usually about 7 to 10 days. ...Read more

Whole family is sick with the flu. What are the chances of my 2.5 month old breast fed baby getting sick too?
No: As with any exposure to virtually any infection ever, the one exposed does not always get sick, including infants. Many factors come into play, including the degree of exposure and the competence of the immune system of the one exposed. With many infections, symptoms become apparent within 2-4 days of the exposure. If you are concerned about your baby's health, let your pediatrician know. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
