HFMD

What actually is hand, foot, and mouth disease (HMFD)? HMFD is a viral illness that affects young children, usually younger than the age of 5. However, older children and some adults can also contract HFMD. You may realize you have contracted HFMD if you’re suffering from sores in the mouth, a rash on the hands and feet, a fever, sore throat, and/or reduced appetite. While this illness can spread easily, it usually can clear up on its own within 7 to 10 days. Luckily, Cherrywood Foot Care and our podiatrist in Nassau County, working out of Wantagh, Merrick, East Meadow, and Bellmore, offers treatment for HFMD.
