Hand, Foot And Mouth Disease

My twin nephews caught “Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease” a few days ago. The elder was crying for days and lost his appetite due to the painful blisters inside the mouth. Other symptoms of the infection are short-lived fever and red spots/ blisters on the palms and on the soles of the feet.

The doctor said this particular type of
Coxsackie virus is mild, unlike the lethal plague erupted years ago which cause instant pass-out.
