Are they sore?: Does he have any lesions on his hands or mouth? There is a viral infection that he may have contracted from another child that causes hand - foot - mouth disease. It makes them irritable and cranky but will pass without antibiotics. Tylenol (acetaminophen) may be used for pain. It is contagious to other kids if they have never had it yet.
