Hi...when it is healing hand foot mouth disease, I suggest you not to put any soframycin and siloderm on this as this might spread the lesions. If there is lot of itching I suggest you use, Hydroxyzine at 1-2mg/kg/dose every 6th to 8th hourly for 5 days. If this is a prescription drug in your country, please consult your pediatrician.
