Hi,

HFMD is a viral illness and no specific antiviral drug is available. We have to treat symptomatically. Sore gums and throat can be treated with oral analgesics gel. Vitamin C supplementation can help to cure gum bleeds. You can give citrus fruit juices which are rich in vitamin C and also treats dehydration.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Rajmohan, Pediatrician
