33

The most common ailments we associate with red spots are measles and chicken pox, both of which are common afflictions that usually affect kids. However, doctors are now warning parents about a new disease whose symptoms can easily be mistaken with those of chicken pox.
The Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD) is a condition that is spreading like fire throughout the country, so it’s important to be aware of what the disease is all about and how it can be treated. HFMD is actually a viral infection, but unlike a common cold or flu, it can be much more dangerous.
The condition is extremely contagious and spreads from those infected to healthy persons quite easily. Once the person becomes infected, he or she will start to get painful red blisters all over the hand, foot and mouth areas, hence the name.
This can be extremely difficult to deal with, especially in the case of children who have a low tolerance to pain. The good news is that the disease can be treated. Also, there are certain things you can do to protect yourself and your loved ones from it!
