Lauren Goodger rushes sick daughter Larose to the doctors and reveals they both have mystery illness

Lauren Goodger has rushed her sick daughter Larose to see a doctor.

The former TOWIE star, 35, took to her Instagram Stories on Tuesday morning where she revealed that her one-year-old had become increasingly unwell over the course of a week, and now requires medical attention.

Lauren also told her followers that now she too has been struck down with the same mystery illness, after first thinking her daughter had chicken pox or possibly hand, foot and mouth disease. 

This comes just weeks after the TV personality tragically lost her newborn daughter, Lorena, after complications with her birth. 

‘Really bad!’ Lauren Goodger, 35, has rushed her sick daughter Larose, one, to see a doctor, and revealed that now she too has been struck down with the same mystery illness

The dash to see a doctor comes just days after Lauren paid a touching tribute to her late baby daughter Lorena with a new tattoo of her name. 

WHAT IS HAND, FOOT AND MOUTH DISEASE?

Hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) is a viral infection that causes lesions to form on a sufferer’s hands, feet and mouth.

It can also affect the buttocks and genitals.

The condition is not related to foot and mouth disease in animals.  

HFMD is usually not serious and does not require treatment, however, it can cause secondary infections if skin is scratched.

It is most common in children under 10, with outbreaks occurring at nurseries and schools. 

How can it be spread? 

  • Close personal contact, such as hugging an infected person
  • The air when an infected person coughs or sneezes
  • Contact with faeces, such as changing diapers of an infected person, then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth before washing your hands
  • Contact with contaminated objects and surfaces, like touching a doorknob that has viruses on it, then touching your eyes, mouth, or nose before washing your hands

Treatment focuses on adequate fluid intake, a soft diet and painkillers, if necessary.

She tragically lost her newborn baby, Lorena, due to complications during the birth last month.

Lauren revealed on Sunday that the tattoo was made using her child’s ashes and admitted it makes her feel closer to Lorena. 

Lauren explained the special tattoo in more detail on her Instagram Stories on Sunday night: ‘So my Lorena tattoo has been tattooed with her ashes. It’s something special. Her ashes are now tattooed in me forever.’

‘Everyday I got through my list that is full of things that I have to do either for my babies, my home, my future, for my Larose and my angel baby.’

She added: ‘This was one on my list that was on my mind everyday and I’m so glad it’s done.’

Cremation tattoos are created using a blend of normal tattoo ink and a small amount of cremation ashes to make the tribute more meaningful. 

Filming the wrist ink, the reality star revealed the tribute via Instagram – penning ‘For you my baby girl”.

Lauren was also allegedly assaulted on the day of her baby’s funeral. Her boyfriend Charles Drury, 25, was later arrested and bailed following the incident. 

Sharing a video of the tattoo, Lauren wrote: ‘Today / for you my baby girl’, followed by a picture of it.

The lettering, which sits just above her wrist and to the side, features a dainty butterfly at the end of Lorena’s name.

Elsewhere on her Stories, Lauren shared a post about having ‘no support, on a black background, she shared the quote: ‘No support was all the motivation I needed.’

She tragically lost her daughter Lorena after she was born with two knots in her umbilical cord, tied around her neck and despite ten doctors fighting to save her, she passed away shortly after her birth. 

It comes as she went through a ‘horrendous whirlwind’ dealing with the death of both Lorena and her ex-boyfriend Jake McLean – who lost his life when his car plunged 70ft off a cliff in Turkey last month.

She recently thanked her fans for their support during an ‘awful heartbroken time’.
