Stay on the medicine as prescribed for a few more days and the child should improve. If not see your Peds again. I hope things get better

Amoxicillin can cause a rash but it is benign. The fever is likely due to a viral illness. If he is acting ok and the fever has not resolved in a week, Take him back to his doctor. If he stops acting normal and appears ill take him in right away. Trust your instincts. you know your child best.
