Customer Question

I have contracted Coxsakie from my 11 month old daughter. I have the following symptoms: Blisters on throat, blisters on feet, and a few on hands. I had a low grade fever and join pain. I am feeling better now but have had terrible pain in my throat from the blisters. My questions is how long do the blisters usually last - is there anything to make them heal faster or soothe them. It's hard to eat or even drink water. And, how long am I contagious?
Thank you!

I can empathize with you as I have had this terrible illness as well

Rest assured it will get better

I would recommend ibuprofen for the throat.

The blisters usually last a week to 10 days at most. usually less

You are contagious until your sore throat is nearly gone
