What is coxsackievirus infection?

Coxsackie virus is in the enterovirus family. It may cause hand, foot, and mouth disease, which typically occurs in children but can also occur in adults. The viral infection is usually self-limited and no treatment is necessary. However, it is highly contagious and preventing transmission is hard.
