Dr. or ER can check: In such cases, an evaluation is needed. There are enteroviruses (stomach viruses) that cause hand-foot-mouth disease. Coxsackie virus is a common cause of HFM and can infect both children and adults. Patients get mouth sores, from a few to many sores, and have pain with eating and drinking. The virus can cause heart symptoms, which would be serious. But first, a diagnosis is needed.
