Be more specific: If the rash itches, it is more likely from atopic dermatitis but then I would expect that your skin doctor can give you a better idea. Psoriasis and atopic dermatitis occur at different sites. With AD more at the elbow crease and itchy, psoriasis more at the outside of the extremities. If uncertain, talk to your doctor.

See derm: Amoxicillin allergy usually does not cause a crusty rash. You need to see a dermatologist if this has been a persistent or recurrent problem.
