Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Coxsackie virus is just like any other virus but mainly responsible for hand foot and mouth disease.

The virus that causes hand, foot, and mouth disease can travel in body fluids of an infected person. For example, the virus can be found in:

●Mucus from the nose

●Saliva

●Fluid from one of the sores

●Traces of bowel movements

People with hand, foot, and mouth disease are most likely to spread the infection during the first week of their illness. But the virus can live in their body for weeks or even months after the symptoms have gone away.

Usually do not cause any serious illness.
