Strong medication: Augmentin is a very strong medication. Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, upset stomach and rash. Talk to your prescribing Dr. and have them take a look at the rash. Probably not enough to discontinue the med, but you want to be sure. Make sure you give the meds with food to minimize the digestive irritation. Watch for lip, eye and face swelling.

Agree: I agree with the previous doctor, the augmenting is probably too strong for the toddler.consult your doctor once more to evaluate the rash but watch out for other signs of allergy like facial swelling.
