We taught the kids how to prevent the 'monster' -> hand-foot-mouth disease (HFMD) by educating them the proper way of hand washing via a cute handwashing dance.
The best way to prevent HFMD is by having good hygiene. Remember to wash your hands before and after meals as well as after visiting the washroom. It is also crucial not to share eating utensils as HFMD is contagious via saliva contact.
HFMD usually presents with fever, painful rash over their palms & soles and ulcers over back of the throat.
Quickly bring them to our clinic for further assessment as confirmation of HFMD requires isolation from school/nursery to prevent disease outbreak.
