Myself Dr Josh- A Board Certified Physician. and I’m happy to help with your question today.
Coxsackie virus is the most common cause of HFMD(Hand,foot & mouth disease).This disease is very contagious (easily spread)..Treatment is usually not needed as the body's immune system clears the virus and symptoms go away after about 7 to 10 days.
Generally, a person/kid with hand, foot, and mouth disease is most contagious during the first week of illness. The virus can remain in her body for weeks after the signs and symptoms are gone. That means she still can infect others.though to a lesser degree.
This child should stay at home until her symptoms resolve.Afterwards she should avoid close contact with her peers, such as allowing others to eat or drink after her.
So bot***** *****ne is yes,she should stay at home & avoid day care till her rash/symptoms lasts/go away completely.
Hope this helped
