Keep your child hydrated and as comfortable as possible. This will help the body fight off the infection.</p><p>Antibiotics do not work on viruses. They will not help heal herpangina or hand, foot and mouth disease.</p><h3>Pain relief</h3><p>To control pain, give your child <a href="/Article?contentid=62&language=English">acetaminophen</a> or <a href="/Article?contentid=153&language=English">ibuprofen</a>. Pain relieving rectal suppositories can be given if your child cannot take the medication by mouth. Always follow the instructions on the label or speak with your child’s doctor.</p><h3>Drink small amounts of fluids often</h3><p>Give your child fluids often and in small amounts to prevent dehydration. Cold foods and soft foods such as ice cream and apple sauce are soothing and will not irritate the sores. Citrus, soft drinks, and salty or spicy foods may cause more pain.</p><h2>Preventing spread and future episodes</h2><p>To prevent the spread of infection, wash your hands and your child’s hands often.
