Hi mommies!  I just want to inform you about the HFMD disease spreading right now in some parts of Manila and Cavite.  My 2 year old got it from ( I suspect) when we went out to the mall.  This disease can be easily spread through kissing, sneezing, etc.  Be careful if you are going out with your little ones.  Make sure that they don't touch anything dirty or at least always disinfect their hands.  Here are some info about it. 
Symptoms:

    Fever
    Sore throat
    Feeling of being unwell (malaise)
    Painful, red, blister-like lesions on the tongue, gums and inside of the cheeks
    A red rash, without itching but sometimes with blistering, on the palms, soles and sometimes the buttocks
    Irritability in infants and toddlers
    Loss of appetite
In 2010 Kris Aquino and her kids got this. It is highly contagious.  To prevent this:
Hand, foot, and mouth disease is spread from person to person through nose and throat secretions (such as saliva, sputum, or nasal mucus), blister fluid, or stool of infected persons. You can lower your risk of being infected by

    Washing your hands often with soap and water
    Disinfecting dirty surfaces and soiled items
    Avoiding close contact such as kissing, hugging, or sharing eating utensils or cups with infected persons
Balitaan niyo ko mga mommies if you have any info or thoughts about this disease.

Thanks for sharing but I'm a bit confused with HFMD or herpangina and tigdas hangin or roseola.  Do they have the same symptoms? 

My daughter is sick right now.  It started Thursday night with a fever.  Had her checked,  pedia found mouth sores.  Sa gabi lang siya nag fever pero sinat lang.  Yesterday, we gave her a quick bath.  Since last night tuloy tuloy fever niya 38 temp.  As for blisters, it started sa side tummy niya, flat red spots then sa elbow medyo umbok.  Sa pwet niya medyo marami, sa palm butlig butlig lang ganun din sa paa.  Do you think HFMD ito o tigdas hangin?  Mouth sores medyo dumami since yesterday.

Hello,
Last november my son got this HFMD, he is already 16 months old that time. At first nagkaroon siya nang sinat  about 37 degrees. Pero nung nagsubside na yung fever niya may mga rashes nang at leg part. Kaya ako nagiging praning na agad2 punta sa pedia niya for check up and she confirmed na HFMD nga, but she recommend na undergo nang blood test just to make sure na hindi dengue and thanks god negative ang results.  May nireseta rin na gamot na good for 5 days and oral gel naman para sa mga rashes sa loob nang mouth.

My son is still active while he had HFMD makulit pa rin.

My 6years old daughter got HFMD last October. At first I thought it's tigdas hangin or infant roseola, but her pedia excluded it because according to her, it occurs only to babies up to 2 years old. Yes, HFMD is highly contagious and it will subside just naturally, but my daughter 's pedia just gave her medication to control the rashes and the virus. Good enough, di niya natawa yung 1year old baby brother niya.

My Liam got HFMD 3wks ago lang :(
At first napansin ko iba amoy ng mouth niya and super naglalaway. Irritable pa. Then nagka fever ng 36hrs. It was thursday then. Nung umaga ng saturday nakita ko may rashes na sa foot and lower legs niya, sakto may checkup sya sa pedia for ptb test kasi nagka primary complex pamangkin ko, so i want to know if meron din si baby para ma-start na meds. Ayun pedia ruled out HFMD kaya hindi na din sya na-ptb test. Pinag-dolan sya 24hrs then as necessary na lang. She also gave yung para immune system niya na hinahalo sa milk. Nagkaroon sya sa may buttocks din. Niresetahan nga din pala sya ng aciclovir and rash free na ipapahid sa rashes niya. Good thing naman hindi na dumami yung rashes and nag subside ma after 2 days. Un nga lang meron pa rin bakas nung mga rashes :( pero atleast baby is ok now :) grabe kahit gaano kaingat sa bata magkakasakit pa rin talaga. Nakaka stress lang!

Kagagaling lang ng daughter ko, pero mouth sores at swollen gums lang yung kanya. Sabi ng pedia uso daw ang hfmd ngayon. Buti hindi na nagkaroon sa hands at feet yung anak ko. Kawawa talaga almost 2.5 kilos ang nawala sa kanya kase hindi makakain ng maayos. At first may sores na sa loob ng mouth malapit sa tonsil niya, then yung gums niya sa molar namamaga na din, medyo may amoy na din yung mouth niya. Almost 4 days na lagnat din siya. Grabe yung pagka maga ng gums niya, as in lumiit talaga teeth niya.  Ngayon pang 7th day since nagkaroon siya, masigla na at nakakakain na din. Magaling na din ang sores except sa gums niya may part na maga padin. Ingat nalang mommies, good peraonal hygiene at vitamins c para sa mga anak natin.
