Default Treat Hand, Foot, Mouth Disease in 2 Yr Old

My 2 yr old has hand foot and mouth disease...according to our doctor. She had some white spots in her throat and I think red spots in her mouth. Is there anything I can give her to help combat this virus?

Would manuka honey kill it?

I doubt manuka honey would help. Honey is known for bacterial infections, not viral. And this virus is all through her body and the honey wont get to all the places.

Don't worry, this is a fairly benign infection, although highly contageous, and she will come through it just fine.
