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. Regards, Kenny
