Good idea: Whether to prevent your spreading it to the babies or to discover if you caught it from work and need to advice the facility - yes. See a doc for exam and/or lab work. Also, if it is painful - relief will be nice. Best wishes for it being a minor easy to correct issue. ...Read more

Viral?: Did your baby have a fever? Does your baby have blisters anywhere else? Like in her hands or in her mouth. Your description sounds like a cocxacki virus, which is benign and will resolve in 3-5 days. It is important to keep your baby comfortable and well hydrated. See your doctor if your baby is irritable or there is a high fever. ...Read more

Hope this helps. : Young children tend to be very resilient and good healers. Although I can't guarantee there will be no marks, but I can tell you that it tends to take a lot to scar a child...usually deep cuts. Things such as blisters tend to heal without a trace after a few months. ...Read more

Daughter has hand foot & mouth blisters in mouth what can I do to make her more comfortable? Also i'm 7 months pregnant will it harm my unborn baby?

Mouth blisters: Hand foot and mouth disease is caused by a virus, and usually goes away in 7-10 days. The pain from mouth blisters can be helped by staying away from spicy and acidic foods and drinks (maintaining a bland diet). Check with your dentist or medical doctor about pain meds (tylenol or advil). Orabase ointment can be applied to the blisters before meals. It is non-prescription and sticks to the mouth. ...Read more
