Are there any long term effects from taking Xeloda for hand foot syndrome?

Do all babies who are exposed to hand, foot and mouth syndrome always get sick?

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 more

I have raynaud's syndrome. How can I keep my hands and feet warm?

If a person has only mild symptoms, he can keep his hands, feet, face, and ears warm with well-insulated clothing. The newest gadgets (such as heated gloves and heated socks) from winter sports stores may help. Using portable heaters, pre-warming the car, keeping dry, etc..., are helpful ideas. ...Read more
