Good evening, thanks for the question
Hand, foot, mouth disease (HFMD) or known as singapur flu is a common viral infection in infants and children. Infection usually involves the hands, feet, mouth. The cause is a coxakievirus strain virus infection.
Singapur flu can be characterized by a fever that is not too high, decreased appetite, and weakness. A common symptom is pain in the mouth area due to enanthema or thrush. Nipple-filled fluid in the skin that is not itchy, and usually also not painful.
Bintil filled with fluid in the skin in influenza singapur is infectious until the skin abnormality has dried up and turned into a yellowish crust, and there is no more fluid in it. But the virus is still in the feces of children until a few weeks after the skin disorder is cured. If so the child is allowed to go to school but must be able to maintain cleanliness by regularly washing hands with soap and running water, and not exchanging cutlery to prevent transmission.
Rash scars do not need to worry because they are no longer infectious, but it does take time to disappear completely, which is for 3-4 weeks. The most important thing is to minimize the risk of transmission and increase children's endurance through nutritious food and physical activity.
That's all, hope you can help
