Hand, foot, and mouth disease HFM is a common viral infection that causes painful red blisters in the mouth and throat, and on the hands, feet, and diaper area. HFM is contagious and easily spreads to others through contact with unwashed hands, feces poop , saliva spit , mucus from the nose, or fluid from the blisters. Kids under age 5 are most at risk for HFM, as infections are common in childcare centers, preschools, and other places where kids are in close quarters. Symptoms usually clear up within a week and kids recover completely. There's no cure for HFM and no vaccine to prevent it, but your doctor can recommend home care to make your child more comfortable during recovery.
