The Centers for Disease Control reports that HFMD is common in children under the age of five.

It is a contact disease that can be transmitted by hugging or kissing an infected person. The infection can also be spread by changing diapers and blowing your nose.

It is most common in summer and fall and usually clears up within seven to 10 days.

Adults can also contract the virus, but they often don’t show any symptoms, which allows them to unknowingly pass it on to others.
