HAND, FOOT, AND MOUTH DISEASE IN CHILDREN

 
The viruses that usually cause hand, foot, and mouth are named coxsackievirus. Anyone can have the disease, but children under age 5 are most likely to get it. It tends to spread easily in the summer and fall
 
Early symptoms:
  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Painful blisters inside a child’s mouth, usually toward the back, or on their tongue
  • Feeling unwell (malaise)
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Crankiness
A day or two later, a child might have:
  • A rash that turns into blisters
  • Flat spots or sores on their knees, elbows, or buttocks
Mouth sores can make it hurt to swallow. Eating or drinking less than usual could be the only sign of a child’s illness. Be sure they get enough fluids and nutrients.
