Hand-Foot-Mouth Disease

My maid called me this morning telling me that my boy's legs were bitten by a lot of mosquitoes. I told her to apply some cream for him and take his mattress out for sunning, in case it's bed bug and not mosquitoes.

When I got home, I was shocked to see blisters and not mosquitoes bite marks on his thigh! As he had a slight fever the day before, the first thing that came into my mind was Chicken Pox. I immediately quarantine him from his 2 jiejie and told my maid to wash all his toys and stuffs with Detol. While she is at it, I brought him down to our family doctor to have him check.

The doctor suspect it to be HFMD instead of Chicken Pox as he found 2 small ulcers in his mouth and the blister only appeared on his legs and not body. But as my boy is feeding fine, the doctor just gave him some cream to apply on the blisters and asked me to monitor him closely.

Poor boy, he's really very weak as compared to his 2 sisters. Seems to be that he will fall sick every 2 months...*sigh*..Wonder what i can do to boast his immune system...
