The incubation period is the time between initial contact with the virus and the onset of symptoms. A fever is usually the first sign of this infectious disease and appears about three to six days after catching the virus. Hand-foot-and-mouth disease is normally a mild illness, so the fever should last only a few days but will be accompanied by other mild signs of infection.
