I have been hearing alot about this certain disease. Its called Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD) I have been hearing about it on the news and peers. This disease mainly effects kids 10yrs and under. They say the symptoms starts to happen within 3-7 days after you have been infected. Most of the Symptoms are :

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Rash - small blister on Hands and Feet, and diaper area may be tender or painful
  • Soar throat

There is no Specific treatment for this illness, but it Is HIGHLY Contagious !! Tylenol can be used to treat the fever, but that's about it.

Just make sure you teach your kids to wash their hands and keep sanitary. I really say this for the parents who put their kids in Day Care. Just be more aware and cautious when it comes to your kids, you show them at home how to keep sanitary.
