Hi Lisa,


 


Here are some Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease information for your reference:


span style="color: #011892;">Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease is an infectious disease that usually occurs in children under 10 years of age, but adults can also become infected.  It’s characterised by fever, sores in the mouth, and rashes with vesicles (blisters). The rash doesn’t itch and it is located on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet.  It may also appear on the buttocks.  A person with HFMD may have only the rash or the mouth ulcers.

span style="color: #011892;">HFMD is spread from person-to-person by direct contact with nose and throat discharges, saliva, blister fluid or the stool of infected persons.  It is infectious 2 days before the rash appears and during the acute stage of illness.  It is most contagious during the first week of the illness.
