If you’re diagnosed with HFMD, make sure to keep coughs and sneezes to yourself, wash your hands often with soap and warm water, and try to be as diligent as possible about wiping down areas or objects that you may have touched to prevent the spread of infection.
Although it is most common among children—and especially easy to transmit in places like daycares and school classrooms—HFMD can affect anyone of any age.
Preventive measures to HFMD?
Washing hands often and thoroughly, especially before preparing a meal, after going to the bathroom or changing a diaper, and making person-to-person contact during the months when an outbreak is more likely.
Clean and disinfect toys, counters, and other objects/surfaces regularly. In classrooms and daycares, and even at home, the infection can be spread easily. Keep yourself and others protected by using disinfectant to clean often-used objects and surfaces.
Avoiding close contact with those who are infected with HFMD. If you need to make close contact with someone with HFMD, follow the steps above to prevent it from spreading.
If you think you or a loved one may have been diagnosed with HFMD, call your pediatrician or family physician to report your symptoms. You should also alert other individuals, like teachers or babysitters, about the diagnosis so that they can begin prevention tactics and look for symptoms in others.
