Hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) is a viral infection that is pretty common in children, known to cause fever, mouth sores and a blistering rash, that appears usually on the hands and feet. Children seem to be vulnerable to HFMD, though in rare cases adults also contract it. HFMD has no connection to the foot-and-mouth disease that afflicts cattle, sheep and swine.
