Hand-foot-and-mouth disease is a mild, but highly contagious viral infection common in young children. Hand-foot-and-mouth disease is characterized by sores in the mouth and a rash on the hands and feet. It spreads from person to person, usually through unwashed hands or contaminated surfaces. The most common cause of hand-foot-and-mouth disease is coxsackievirus infection.
It's making it's 2nd round in our household. Alex had it back in the spring and gave it to Bethany. Now he's picked it up again and I have no clue where he got it from, I know no other kids who have it.
So here's his little hands, you can't see the smaller dots.
He seems to be in a great mood, not too grouchy. I just can't believe we got it again. He has little blisters in his mouth and dots on his tongue. He ran a low grade temp a few days ago, nothing really even worth noticing.
