Hand-foot-and-mouth disease has been confirmed at Cedarcrest High School, reports school nurse Jackie Boak, in an e-mail sent to Cedarcrest families Oct. 30. The disease, caused by a form of enterovirus, is painful but not life-threatening. It is not related to hoof-and-mouth disease, although the names are similar. It can cause flu-like symptoms, and sores or blisters in and around the mouth, hands, feet and legs. Because the disease is caused by a virus, like a cold or flu, the treatment is basically rest and fluids.
