Hello,

There are few red dots found on the mouth of both my niece and nephew since yesterday (Tuesday 31/7) and both of them under monitor by my sister.

My 54 days old baby do met them on last Sunday (29/7), will there be any risk and what should I do other than monitor my baby and stay away from my niece and nephew?

Asked by Carolhyf - Posted 4 months, 2 weeks, 2 days, 15 hours, 43 minutes ago.

Dear Carol

Your niece and nephew need to be examined by a doctor to confirm whether they have hand, foot and mouth disease.

Please practise good hand hygiene and monitor your baby’s temperature. Please observe for signs of hand, foot and mouth disease such as mouth ulcers, rashes on hands and feet, poor feeding etc. Please consult a doctor if you have any concern about your baby’s behaviour.

Thank you.

Regards,

Dr Pong Kwai Meng
Consultant Paediatrician and Neonatologist
