Otherwise, the burden of oral bacterial can be tamed by the use of either listerine or a warm salt water gargle for 1min, 3 times daily. ...Read more

My twelve year old son has a rash on his feet and palms of his hands. He had a mouth ulcer last week but no other mouth sores. He also has mild cold symptoms. Is HFM in winter possible?

Hand foot and mouth: Yes HFM is mostly a summer virus but the virus does not follow the rules. Your description fits very well. The blisters last 1-2 weeks in the hands and feet. The oral sores are earlier and go away after a week. The rash is contagious if the vesicles are opened and drained. There is no treatment. Pain meds do help if needed. Drink lots of fluids. Good diagnosis!! ...Read more

My infant was kissed on her hand by someone with a history of cold sores (no active sore). She put her hand in her mouth; could she contracted hsv-1?

An older infant?: Actually, the majority of the population has had hsv-1 oral herpes already. We try not to spread obvious germs, so people with cold sores shouldn't kiss until the sores are gone. With young babies, it's best to avoid getting infections from other people. After a baby is older and stronger, such as at the toddler age, getting an hsv-1 infection causes mouth and gum sores, but the toddlers recover. ...Read more
