Hi I currently have Hand Foot Mouth Disease. I am on day 5 of bumps and blisters. I no longer have a fever or sore throat. Most of the bumps aren't raised, however,I still have a patch on my arm of blisters and my face is still slightly oozing. When is it safe to return back to work?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You would need one week off from work.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
