hand foot and mouth

  1. How common is it for an adult to contract hand foot and mouth from a toddler? A neighbors child has it and was over this weekend. My DD has no signs as far as I can tell, but I woke up with what feels like a cacker sore in the back of my throat and on the side of the back of my tongue. I'm not to worried about it, I just don't want my DD to get it from me. Thanks.....

    Yes, kyliebear, you need to contact your personal healthcare provider. Pose these concerns to him/her. We at allnurses.com cannot provide medical opinion/advice.
