COXSAKIE... isn't that Hand foot and mouth disease?  If so it is a virus and it has to pass. No antibiotic will help with it.

If he is crying excessively though, you might want to take him in to get checked for an ear infection. If he isn't eating or driking try to see if he might lick popscles. He will get liquids slowly from the popsicle and the cold might feel good in his mouth and throat.
