Hand, Foot And Mouth In Children And Babies
Hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) is a common illness among children and babies. It’s not usually a cause for concern, but it can be difficult to see your child feeling unwell. The reason that it’s so common, is that it’s spread via close contact – which is frequent at school and nursery.
This article is going to look at the causes of hand, foot and mouth disease, as well as the symptoms and how to prevent it.
