Is there anything that I should put on my daughters rash from hand, foot and mouth disease? It is worst on her bum. Can she swim in a pool?

In brief: Not much

Though speak to your doctor, as if she has an infection, she might need some treatment.

In brief: See below

There are no topical treatments for the rash, that are effective.
She can swim in the pool, as long as she does not have a fever.
