HELP-sick fish!

Hi everyone! I know this is a loach site primarily (love those loaches!), but I need some advice about another fish - quick. I have 4 rosy barbs in a 29 gallon community tank. Two days ago, I noticed one barb with a pink swollen mouth. I thought he had just injured it, but now (2 days later) a second barb has a pink swollen mouth. Do I euthanize the 2 sick barbs before the whole tank is infected? What is it? And should I treat it with appropriate medicine (what?). Any help would be MUCH appreciated! thanks - shirley
