Re: Hand and foot disease: how contagious and how does it spread?

I'm no expert but here is what I was told when my youngest had it a few months back...it's contagious for about 10 days (I can't remember if she said after the rash appears or just whenever diagnosed) and that the stools are contagious for a month. She also told me that adults don't usually get it (though she herself did once), that it's usually kids and once they get it they generally don't get it again, though other people have said there are different strands of it, so there are some discrepancies.
