Yes. LO won't get infected by the same virus after recovery but there are 99+ variants of the virus which can still infect. It is like flu virus which you keep getting even though recover many times because there are many variants of the virus.

Yup. Totally possible. Just try to keep LO clean always and sanitise everything! Doesn’t hurt to be too clean or careful if child is susceptible to HFMD

Yes, hence need to ensure hygiene of child, and encourage them to wash their hands thoroughly before/after meals and toilet.

Yes, your child can still get it. It’s not like chicken pox that you can only get it 1x.

Yes. There is even a higher chance of getting it again once you got it before.
