Health Notification from Dr. Spurka

This article is to notify you that there have been identified cases of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (Coxsackie virus) at Cambridge High School. Please do not be alarmed, as Hand Foot and Mouth Disease is a common childhood illness. The symptoms are much like a common cold with a rash. The rash appears as blisters or sores in the inside of the mouth, palms of the hands, fingers and soles of the feet. This may occur within 3-6 days after contact. If your student is noted to have any of these symptoms, please contact or visit your health care provider as well as notify the school's Clinic Assistant, Karen Thimsen or 470-254-2536.

As with many childhood illnesses, good hand washing and hygiene, and proper disposal of soiled tissues can help to prevent the spread of infection.

We hope this information is helpful. However, it is not meant for self-diagnosis or as a substitute for consultation with a health care provider. If you have additional questions concerning Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease, please contact your health care provider.

Dr. Spurka
