Two to three weeks after our family contacted HFMD, i noticed that all infected areas on the skin started to peel. I asked my friend who has also experienced HFMD and she said the same thing happened to her.
The peeling part is not painful but looks terrible. It a quite annoying for the kids since they are often tempted to tug on the skin that's started to peel. This has lead to some raw skin that can be quite painful for them. What we do now is to put band-aids on areas that are in the process of peeling to avoid the temptation of tugging on the skin before they are ready to fall off.
What's interesting though is that the only lesions/sores that did not peel are those around Dawn's mouth. That's actually a relief on a beauty standpoint :)
I will continue to update you should there be updates to this HFMD saga. But i
hope foresee that this is the last leg to this disease.
