Hand Foot Mouth disease is a common viral illness that primarily affects infants and young children. It is characterized by a distinctive rash on the hands, feet, and mouth. In this article, we will take you through everything you need to know about Hand Foot Mouth disease, including its causes, symptoms, treatment options, lifestyle changes, and the importance of staying educated on this condition. 

Hand Foot Mouth disease, also known as HFMD, is caused by the Coxsackievirus. This virus is highly contagious and can spread easily from person to person. It is most commonly spread through direct contact with saliva, mucus, or feces from an infected person. It can also be transmitted through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Close contact with contaminated surfaces or objects can also contribute to the spread of the virus. It is important to note that HFMD is not the same as foot-and-mouth disease, which affects livestock.
