For how long is Herpangina Contagious?

Patient : My only symptom for the past 3 days has been increased thirst and white spots near the uvula, am I still contagious? There has been no fever as far as I know from the beginning. My temp. at the Dr's (on 3/18) was 99*F(37.2*C) and today it was 98(36.7*C). I was diagnosed with Herpangina on 3/18 and the aforementioned have been my only symptoms. Could the Dr have gotten it wrong? If not when will I stop being contagious?
Symptoms:  White dots at back of throat, Sore throat, Increased thirst
