Michaeldon (Cape Town, South Africa ) on 01/15/2017I had hospital diagnosed hfMd. They prescribed only paracetamol and a throat spray which I had no time to buy as I could not get to a pharmacy.
Instead I took aspirin twice a day for its supposed anti viral effect. On the second night I took an antihistamine and I woke up feeling fine after feeling awful the day before. They say it takes 5 to 7 days to clear up so
Apparently you can cause Reyes syndrome giving aspirin to kids so this is a suggestion for adult hfmd.
Treated Toddler with Borax Bath for Hand Foot Mouth Disease
Ruth (West Virginia, US) on 12/14/2014My 20 month old screamed with discomfort from Hand Foot Mouth Disease for 2 days and could hardly sleep until finally I bathed him with Borax! It was the first thing that actually calmed him down and helped him sleep. For a bath, I poured maybe 1/2 cup in his water. I also poured a couple tablespoons in a bucket of water to soak his hands and feet it in between baths, and applied a strong concentration of borax/water with a washcloth after his bath or soak. I did this whenever he was uncomfortable, 3 or more times a day at first. I also applied peroxide and silver a couple times a day, and after the borax treatment applied coconut oil mixed with an Herbal Savvy product with myrrh in it. I was also giving him every immune boosting supplement I had: colloidal silver, vit. C, zinc, echinacea, etc. Now, on day 3, he still has the blisters but they don't seem to be bothering him at all. I am also giving the rest of the family lots of immune boosting supplements and praying we don't get it too! (By the way, the same treatments worked for chicken pox too! )
Unpasteurized Goat Milk for Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease Sores
Dv (Israel) on 08/16/2013For Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease, the only treatment I know of that will immediately, within 24 hrs show dramatic healing of the sores is non pasteurized goat milk. In order to avoid ingesting unwanted bacteria, the milk most be brought to a point on the stove when it is starting to froth and rise, then turn off the heat. Sometimes a "skin" will form, skim off or eat it , whatever. At least 1/2 cup of milk should do the job, more doesn't hurt. You may add sugar, cocoa or drink it straight, in a batch, number of times. It's not an exact science but it does the job. Pasteurized goat milk doesn't help nor does cow milk in any form. Perhaps camel milk would be helpful but I don't know from experience.
Boost Immune System for Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease
Glen (Redlands, Ca) on 06/10/2010Hand foot mouth disease. Since it's a virus and will usually show up in people with low immunities, it makes sense to boost the immune system. Probiotics, echinecea and goldenseal or root. The colloidal is a good thing as well since it will kill abnormal pathogens.
Colloidal Silver for Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease
Deb (Brandon, Manitoba) on 07/23/2009I had a friend whos daughter had contracted Hand Foot and Mouth disease at daycare. We had spoken to a few people and some one sujested trying Colloidal Silver. I told her to try it because the doctor would not give her anything. Within two days her daughter was alot better and the symptoms of the Hand Foot and Mouth had gone. My friend is still giving her daughter the Colloidal Silver to stop it from comeing back. We have looked into colloidal silver and apparently its great for all viral infections and internal paracites!
Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (New Page Created, Thank You!)
T.D. (Newburg, PA USA) on 07/11/2009
Worked TemporarilyIt seems that every summer now for the past 3-4 years my children get hand foot and mouth disease. I am a little puzzled why they now getting it almost every summer when before it wasn't an issue. We are actually eating way better than what we used to. As far as cures the only thing the nurse told me was to have them use milk of magnesia as a mouth wash. I can't say that it worked all that well, maybe a little relief. What is out there that is natural?
