My 8-month old ds has been v. grumpy, had diarhea and run a fever but we attributed it to his current ear infection. His daycare provider has told us that another child has Hand Foot and Mouth disease <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/footinmouth.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="footinmouth"> and we should watch for symptoms. He is (always) reluctant to let me look in his mouth so I don't know if he's had blisters or not...<br><br>
He seems to be getting better (less cranky, diarhea is better, no fever) but I now have red spots all over both nipples - could this be HFM? What do I do for it? HELP!

Welcome to MDC!<br><br>
We went through HFand Mouth this winter. It sucks!<br><br>
Definately you can get the sores on your breasts, also your child may get them on their bottom too.<br><br>
We did two things that eased the discomfort...a homepathic medicine called Antimonium Tart 30c and a herbal tea wash that consisted of burdock, marshmallow, calendula, chamomile, and lavender.<br><br>
Hugs to you and your tot. Hope you all feel better soon!
