coxsackie

DD has coxsackie, I was just wondering how long I should expect it to last. She has some sores in her thoart but no rash (yet atleast) The docter said 3-4 days but i wasnt sure if that was the soares then the rash will pop out or should she be almost back to normal in that time?? Sorry im confused...

Also he said piggy back tylenol & motrion so that means i have her motrin at 8 so I can then give her tylenol at 12 and mortrion at 4 right???

UPDATE::::

So today DD broke out in the rash but is it normal to be all over her legs?? She has some on her feet but mostly her legs are covered?? Also now that the rash came out shes no longer contagious correct??

Can she go to daycare?

Re: coxsackie

My DD just had this 3 weeks ago. The fevers lasted about 4 days, she never got any rash, and the sores in her mouth were not bothering her as much by about day 5 and a week after she came down with it her throat was basically clear.

I just had DD on Motrin every 8 hrs. until the last day when the fevers were low, then I just did Tylenol.

Re: coxsackie

My son had it for Easter this year. The fever lasted about 4 days. I just gave him Motrin when it was high, but bu the 3rd day I didn't give him anything. He staryed with the sores in his throat and within a day or 2, they were all over his hands, feet, diaper area, and lower abdomen. The throat sores were gone after maybe 2 days, but it took close to a week for the rest. Hope she feels better soon!

Re: coxsackie

My twins had this last week. They had a few sores in their throat and the fever with DS only lasted 1 day. DD the fever was 2 days. DS got a rash on his feet about a day or 2 later and DD got the mon her arms, hands and feet. But everything i read and from what the dr told us, that was the tail end of it and they were cleared to go back to daycare.

Here's my piggybacking schedule if it helps (obviously run it past your ped):



12 midnight - Motrin
4am - Tylenol
6am - Motrin
8am - Tylenol
12 noon - Motrin
4pm - Tylenol
6pm - Motrin
8pm - Tylenol

I don't give a double dose at the 12 hour.
---------------------

We've had it plenty of times in this house. Wash hands, wash hands, wash hands!

Ice pops or anything cold to ease the blisters in her mouth is helpful. I'd hold off on any citric drinks.

Re: coxsackie

Sounds normal, it can be arms, legs, feet, hands, trunk, mouth, or any combo of that! I would call daycare and ask. Our daycare requires the child be fever free and rash free for 24 hours before returning. Also, our ped told us that if the blisters are still fluid-filled, then they are still contagious.

I really do feel for you. My two kids had it at the same time and it was torture. They were suffering so much and there was really not much I could do. It is normal to have it on their legs. My kids had it on their hands, feet, legs, and mouth. Sorry mama. In a couple of days it wil get better. Chat Icon

Re: coxsackie

DS had it last month. It was so disgusting, I felt so bad for him.

He got it everywhere too-clusters on his mouth, hands and feet but blisters also on his legs, stomach, arms. It was horrible.

He never got a fever though.

As a tip-DS seemed to like a luke warm bath, I gave him one a few times a day. I kept him in long sleeve, footie jammies so he couldn't scratch. And, I slathered him with aquaphor to make him feel a little better.

It was bad for about 4 days, then started to get better. Good luck
