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.
