Hello there. Hand, foot and mouth disease is caused by a virus. Usually only supportive treatment is required like fever reducing drugs, warm water baths etc. Usually this lasts for about a week to 15 days and is self resolving. It will gradually reduce by itself because the body will fight against the virus and gain immunity. Consult a paediatrician periodically till it subsides. Regards
