How is the disease diagnosed?

Diagnosis of HFM disease begins with a medical history and physical exam. HFM disease is diagnosed by observing the characteristic rash. There are no commonly used tests to identify the virus. In rare cases, a test may be ordered to look for the virus in fluid from the skin lesions.
