No, not by a long shot! 12:40 PM: InfantitisI watched a special on Discovery Health called "1000 things found in the human body". Very intersting, yet very scary. I am the type of person that should never watch Discovery Health because everything I see I swear I have. One thing in particular caught my attention, infantitis. This can happen to anyone, man or woman, which makes it even more freakish and scary. Apparently this rare condition is reported about 6 times a year all over the world. What happens is a child grows inside of the body, or at least parts of an infant. One man was reported to have a tumor, but upon inspection and operation it turned out to be parts of a maturing human! When the doctor reached into the mans abnormally sized tumor HE GRABBED A HAND! A FREAKIN HAND DUDE! Ecchhhhh. Unfortunately I was blessed with the knowledge of infantitis during a terrible bought of stomach fright, and I was sure I was one of the 6 cases of 2003. No worries though, it was just a bad turkey burger that took me out, but still, just the thought makes my skin leak (sweat). So the moral of the story? There isn't one, just don't freakin watch the Health channel if you are suffering from anything, at all! You'll have pink eye and think that your eyepiece is mutating into a slug or something, or at least I would. Current Mood: scaredComment on this--Wordinafire More »

You know, My niece went to the doctor with a rash today and was told the same diagnosis. Guess it is a new one on me. I thought I knew all of the diseases.lol She also has strep. Hope your cousin's baby feels better.

Hand-foot-mouth disease. Usually caused by a virus called coxsackievirus. HFMD is moderately contagious. Infection is spread from person to person by direct contact with nose and throat discharges or the stool of infected persons. A person is most contagious during the first week of the illness.
