Food & Mouth Disease (HFMD)

March 09, 2006: Foot & Mouth Diseases

Hi Shaw Jean,

Please pass this message to your east Malaysia LOS.

The hand foot mouth infections among children is a virus
infection. Hence, anti-biotics does not help in treating this problem.

Do not give anti-biotics to kids because it will cause
stunned growth.

How to cure? The problem usually will go away after 7 days. During this period of time, our goal is to help the kids relieve the symptoms.

1) Drinks lots of water

2) Drink at least 1 packet of active 8

3) Feed the kids with 5 chewable multi-vitamin, 10 chewable natural C and 2 chewable calcium magnesium per day

4) If the kid start to develop loose stools, stop drinking active 8. If loose stools persist, decrease natural C to 5. If loose still persists, stop taking natural C.

Do step 1 to 4 everyday until the kids recover. Please remember, no anti-biotics.


by the way, have you read the disclaimer?
