Spectrum News aired a story on Coxsackie virus, also known as hand, foot, and mouth disease, which has been circulating through several local schools. The virus causes small blisters on a person’s hands, feet, and mouth, and is often accompanied by a fever.
Ellen Brignola, FNP-BC, a family nurse practitioner with St. Peter’s Urgent Care Clifton Park, a practice of St. Peter’s Health Partners Medical Associates, was interviewed for the story. Her advice on the best way to avoid the virus is to practice good hand-washing.
