Someone in Es class has it- just received an email. What are the signs other than the obvious spots? Is it like Chicken Pox in that other symptoms (cold like) start first? My 2 have been grumpy monkeys today and their noses are streaming but I could just be reading too much into it...
Oh- and is it dangerous for M as he is only 3 months old??

My girls have all had it - M has had it 2 or 3 times. She had tiny spots on her hands and in her mouth (nothing on feet). Apart from that her symptoms were the usual viral type, high temp, grumpy, off food etc. It didn't make them really poorly.

HOpe they dont catch it! PJ xx
I've had it, luckily C didn't catch it.
Mine started with little blisters round my fingers and toes, and also had the most awful ulcers in my mouth (I suffer with bad ulcers anyway, but these were worse!) - can't remember having any other symptoms, although NHS does say cold/cough are common. Not sure about being dangerous for M, hope neither of them get it and their running noses and grumpiness is just a coincidence xx

J had it at about 11 months but didn't have any other symptoms, was his normal self the whole way through

Thank you. I'm hoping they don't get it either!
