Hi, my boy just got HFMD & there were 3 cases reported at school. He's a bit grouchy, no fever, red dots on palm, soles and mouth. Other than that he's still as active as usual.

Our usual family clinic was closed so we visited another clinic which the doc seems to be in a hurry. He prescribed anti-viral med and insisted that he must finish.

I understand that there isn't med for HFMD and anti-biotics are not necessary since it relies on the body immune system to recover. Anyone was prescribed anti-biotics or anti-viral med when your child had HFMD? I'm reluctant to let my boy take unnecessary medications.
