‚ÄčThere have been two confirmed cases of Hand, Foot and Mouth disease at our school.

Symptoms include blisters that start as small red dots which later become ulcers.  Blisters appear inside the cheeks, gums and on the side of the tongue as well as on the hands and feet. 

In infants, sometimes blisters can been seen in the nappy area.  Blisters usually last for 7 - 10 days.  Children can sometimes have a low fever, irritability, sore throat, tiredness, feel off-colour and may be off their food for a day or two.

Hand, Foot and Mouth IS CONTAGIOUS.  Qld Health advises that students should be excluded from school until all blisters have dried.
