Hand-Foot-and-Mouth Disease on Hand – Triggered by coxsackievirus infection, hand, foot & mouth causes blistering of the hands, feet and inside of the mouth, usually accompanied by loss of appetite and a low grade fever. While anyone can get it, it is most common among young children and during the summer months. It usually resolves itself on its own with no treatment, although drugs may be needed for relief if the blistering becomes painful. HFMD is not related to foot-and-mouth disease of cattle.
