Read this mother's story about HFMD:

Hi mommies! I just want to inform you for awareness about the HFMD disease spreading right now in some parts of Manila. My 2 year old got it from ( I suspect) when we went out to the mall. This disease can be easily spread through kissing, sneezing, etc. Be careful if you are going out with your little ones. Make sure that they don't touch anything dirty or at least always disinfect their hands. Here are some info about it. 

Symptoms:
- Fever
- Sore throat
- Feeling of being unwell (malaise)
- Painful, red, blister-like lesions on the tongue, gums and inside of the cheeks
- A red rash, without itching but sometimes with blistering, on the palms, soles and sometimes the buttocks
- Irritability in infants and toddlers
- Loss of appetite

In 2010 Kris Aquino and her kids got this. It is highly contagious. To prevent this:
Hand, foot, and mouth disease is spread from person to person through nose and throat secretions (such as saliva, sputum, or nasal mucus), blister fluid, or stool of infected persons. 

You can lower your risk of being infected by
- Washing your hands often with soap and water
- Disinfecting dirty surfaces and soiled items
- Avoiding close contact such as kissing, hugging, or sharing eating utensils or cups with infected persons.
