Simple Steps to Reduce Risk of HFMD Infection


Hand foot and mouth disease, also known as HFMD is most common among babies and children under the age of five. However, it is possible for older children and adults to be affected by HFMD as well1. Hence, it is extremely vital to stay clean whenever possible, and one of the simplest ways to do so is using the Antabax auxiliary range.


In Malaysia, this disease has affected many families and communities significantly with 35,886 HFMD incidents reported from January until July this year nationwide2.

Antabax, Malaysia’s number 1 Halal antibacterial personal care range, has an auxiliary range that comprises of a terrific trio of pocket-sized Antabax Antibacterial Cleansing Wipes, Instant Hand Sanitizer and Hand Sanitizer Spray. These handy cleansing essentials can help reduce the risk of HFMD infecting children and infants.


Product Usage
HFMD is a communicable disease that spreads through direct contact with the mucus, saliva, blister fluid and faeces of an infected child3. But, it can also spread indirectly through infected surfaces. It is best to sanitize frequently touched items at home or shared public equipment. Among those are the children’s water bottle, door knobs or baby chairs. Wipe them down with Antabax Antibacterial Wipes, freeing it from 99.9% of germs.


It was also recently discovered that the HFMD outbreak that started in Penang originated from supermarket trolley handlebars4. With ease and for peace of mind, use Antabax Hand Sanitizer Spray onto trolley handlebars and wipe it off with a clean tissue. It is also handy when sanitizing toys, schooling equipment’s like pencil case that may have been in contact with other children. It also does wonders when used on public toilet seats and train or bus handles for daily commute. My sons also like to use this hand sanitizer spray.


Our hands will always seem clean because germs are not visible to the naked eyes. It is important for parents to sanitize their hands after making contact with other people or public equipment before handling their children for precautionary measures. Let Antabax Gel Sanitizer do all the dirty work! Squeeze enough on your palm and rub it between hands and fingers as a thorough cleanse from germs, especially when soap and water is not available. I do keep the Antabax Gel Sanitizer inside my car, for the convenient to use as usual my kids will be using it after school.


The Antabax antibacterial range provides 24-hour protection and kills up to 99.9% of harmful germs. Formulated with skin vitamins and Aloe Vera to keep skin healthy and moisturized, its Derma Protect System contains Micro Moisture Serum to leave hands soft, smooth and healthy. Dermatologically tested to be gentle on the most delicate skin, the range is suitable for daily use.


Using Antabax gives all the family peace of mind because it is brand certified Halal by JAKIM.

Good hygiene practice starts from home. Together we can educate our children on its importance to help reduce the risk of your children infected by HFMD with Antabax.
