Posts tagged ‘toddler amoxicillin rash’


Avery recently had her first ear infection which was treated with amoxicillin.  Little did we know that she is allergic!  Last Thursday morning, I noticed a few spots on her neck but didn’t think much of it.  But by the afternoon, her entire chest and back was covered in little red spots.  I called our pediatrician right away, but they still didn’t have power so the doctors were not in the office.  Luckily, I had the trusty internet to diagnose my little patient.  After speaking with the doctor, we immediately stopped using the amoxicillin and gave her a very small dose of children’s Benadryl to help with the allergic reaction.

I didn’t get a good picture of her whole body, but you can get an idea of what my little “spot” looked like for a few days.  The rash eventually spread to her face, hands, and feet before going away.  Thankfully, she was her happy little self throughout the outbreak.
