HAND FOOT MOUTH DISEASE (HFMD)
- Hand foot and mouth disease (HFMD) is typically a benign and common illness among children and infants characterized by rapidly ulcerating vesicles in the mouth and lesions, usually vesicular, on the hands and feet.1 HFMD is an endemic disease in Malaysia. HFMD has become an important public health disease due to its tendency to cause large outbreaks and deaths among children and infants.
-The spread of illnesses and infections are common on kindergartens, nurseries and primary schools are common because children’s immune systems are still developing hence it is easy for small children to contract infections or fall ill. -When a child falls sick from an infection it is highly inconvenient for the parent as they need to find a trusted person to take care of the sick child or take leave from work to take care of the child. On top of that if a school has an outbreak of hand foot mouth disease the school will be closed for several days create more inconvenience for parents. We at Bactakleen understand the difficulty in teaching children about hygiene so the best way forward is to create a safe and hygienic environment for them.
- Hand foot and mouth disease (HFMD) is caused by systemic infections with human enteroviruses. Human enteroviruses comprise one genus in the family Picornaviridae, which also contains the genera rhinovirus, cardiovirus, aphthovirus, hepatovirus and parechovirus. The members of the enterovirus genus that infect humans include the polioviruses, the Coxsackie virus groups A and B, the echoviruses and the enteroviruses 68-71.2
- Hand foot and mouth disease (HFMD) is moderately contagious. Infection is spread from person to person by direct contact with nose and throat discharges, saliva, fluid from blisters, or the stool of infected persons. A person is most contagious during the first week of the illness.
