Go soak your feet.

Daughter has contracted hand foot and mouth disease. She is itchy, sore and miserable. She is soaking her feet in hot oatmeal and feeling pretty sorry for herself. I am telling myself in a firm tone that I am not going to get it. I have had it already, but the strains mutate, and what I had in Virgina 25 years ago is not the same as here.

Living in the city seems to be a whole wide world of infectious disease. I am very ready for this family to stop catching things!

Luckily, this is more in the realm of inconvenience than danger. Still, I would decline if asked.
