  • Just give him motrin or your choice of pain reliever..... and plenty of mommy time. If his throat is infected see if he will take popsicles. If not just try and get him to drink cold things. I wouldn't force any food on him right now. If the eyes are infected try cool or warm compresses, whichever make him feel better.

    A mixture of 1 teaspoon each of mylanta, kaopectate and benadryl (that you make up yourself) can be painted on the inside of the mouth and will provide some additional comfort before meals.

  • You're going to have to decipher coaxkie virus. I have never heard of it.

  • That's the hand, foot, mouth virus right? I think all you can do is give them tylenol or motrin (if there's pain or fever) and wait it out.

  • Make sure your child gets a lot of fluids. My son had this and it was painful for him to drink and he wouldn't even swallow his antibotics and we wound up in the hospital with an IV because he became dehydrated.
