In brief: Fever/spots/pain

Hfm is a viral gut infection.
Some kids can have it ; run a brief temperature ; never show other symptoms. Some have fever, localized spots on their wrists ; nothing else. Some have terrible mouth sores, spots on wrists/forearms/legs feet ; around the bottom ; have cramping ; loose stools. So fever, loose stools ;cramps, amount ; location of blisters seem to be the main variables.
