I just noticed my 3 1/2 yr old son's thumb nails are detaching from the base. He also suffered from hand foot and mouth disease about 3 weeks ago. I'm taking him to the Dr's to see what I can do to prevent them from getting infected since wew are going on vacation in a few days and he will be playing in the sand. I'm releaved that this is common after HFMD. I was so scared it was something serious. My son also is allergic to peanuts. Don't the air lines serve peanuts on plains? I'm freaking out! It's just my son and I flying for the first time together and I am so nervous. I hate to be the one to tell everyone to refrain from eating what some people love.
