Symptomatic care: Hand-foot-mouth disease is a very common viral infection, usually occurring in childhood. Since it is a viral infection, there is no specific treatment for it. Care consists of keeping the child comfortable and hydrated. Here is a link to the cdc article about the illness. http://www.cdc.gov/hand-foot-mouth/index.html.
