Herpangina and Hand-Foot-and-Mouth Disease (Child) [English] Permalink Public

Herpangina is an infection caused by a virus. It causes small red spots to appear at the back of the mouth. These spots then become little fluid-filled sacs (vesicles) that quickly pop, leaving small ulcers or sores. The ulcers are very small, only about 2 to 4 millimetres wide (about 1/8 of an inch). They can be very painful and may cause your child to refuse food and water. Audio available. (English)
