Coxsackievirus Infection Overview
Coxsackieviruses are a common cause of infection in adults and children. The spectrum of disease caused by these viruses ranges from very mild to life-threatening. No vaccine is available, and there is no drug that specifically kills the virus. The key to prevention of coxsackievirus infection is good hand washing and covering the mouth when coughing or sneezing.
