A concerned mum wants to warn parents to watch out for a worrying condition she believes her child contracted after she got coronavirus.

The Liverpool mum battled coronavirus three weeks ago and tried to keep away from her children as much as possible.

As she started to get better she was thrilled when her kids didn’t display any coronavirus symptoms.

She said: “We noticed my daughter had red marks all up her legs after we’d been out for a dog walk, we kept an eye on them over the next couple of days but they started to get worse.

“We called the doctors and sent them photos, but they had no idea what it was.

“My daughter continued to get worse and the doctor referred us to Alder Hey on Friday.”

The family were seen quickly by a doctor at the children’s hospital who she says told her the child’s condition had “more than likely” been caused by the mum’s coronavirus.

The doctor diagnosed the child with coxsackievirus and said it had been caused by the cough droplets in the atmosphere.

The mum continued: “The doctor quickly examined her and he said her throat was red and her glands were up, which we hadn’t noticed.

“He checked the spots and looked at her feet and diagnosed her there and then.

“I told him about my coronavirus battle and he said it had more than likely had something to do with her developing the condition.

“I just wanted to warn parents to be aware of it, and look out for it on their own children.”

The mum says she was told the virus is highly contagious, but does go away by itself after a few weeks, with no more treatment required.

But if the child has pink urine thats a sign of a more serious complication and they should return to hospital immediately.

Coxsackieviruses are viruses that can cause a variety of infections, including hand, foot and mouth disease.

This is a common childhood illness that can also affect adults and usually clears up by itself after seven to 10 days, according to the NHS.

It is easily passed on to other people through coughs and sneezes.
