Who is at risk for HFMD?
HFMD occurs mainly in children under 10 years old, but may also occur in adults too. Everyone is at risk of infection, but not everyone who is infected becomes ill. Infants, children, and ADOLESCENTS are more likely to be susceptible to infection and illness from these viruses, because they are less likely than adults to have antibodies and be immune from previous exposures to them. Infection results in immunity to the specific virus, but a second episode may occur following infection with a different member of the enterovirus group.Source(s): CDC website

I get canker sores when I am stressed. Maybe you are stressed about your double ear infection?? Try taking L-Lysine. You should be able to find it in the supplement section. It should make them go away.

It's probably exactly what they suggested it was.
It IS the summer and you probably just touched something that an infected child touched.
And just because it is "typically" a child disease doesn't mean adults don't get it.
