Coxsackie (hand, foot, mouth virus) remedy?

My 2.5 yr old hasn't been eating for a few days. 2 days ago he started complaining about being cold (it is only about 80 degrees inside and over 100 degrees outside) and then he was very sweaty when he slept and felt slightly feverish though i never took his temperature. Last night at dinner he complained that his mouth hurt but I didn't actually look in his mouth until this morning. His tongue was white and there were some blisters on the side of his tongue and it seemed that one was bleeding. I didn't investigate too thoroughly because I was holding my week old infant. It ocurred to me to look at his hands and feet and indeed, there are spots as well as on his rear. After telling my 5 and 7 yr olds that they couldn't play with their little brother, they informed me that they had blisters as well on their hands and feet! The 5 yr old has not been eating that well for a few days either and just yesterday evening also said that he didn't feel very well. It seems that they are all reacting to it differently. I'm concerned about it being passed on to my newborn. Is there a rememdy I can give them?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give them Mercurius Sol 30 thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours for 3 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 1 drop in some 10 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 15 minutes before or after taking medicine.
