Drug rash or mono?: One or the other of the two doctors -- probably the most recent one -- is in the best position to judge whether the rash is drug allergy and which antibiotic is responsible. Notably, drug rash with amoxicillin is especially common in infectious mononucleosis. And mono itself may cause rash. Ask your doctor(s) about possible retesting for mono.
