The one thing that strikes fear in many parents’ hearts is when their child contracted a virus like Hand Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD). While this contagious viral illness is not serious, it is very hard to watch your child struggle with the disease.
Children under 6 years old are particularly vulnerable because of their age and their propensity to touch different unclean surfaces with their hands and placing them in their mouths for sensory effect. HFMD is transmitted through saliva and unsanitary practices like licking (something young kids are likely to do).
Areas where these young children frequent such as indoor playgrounds, public play areas, or childcare centers are hot spots to catch HFMD. Hence, cleanliness and the good practices in hygiene are crucial factors to fight against the spread of the disease.
