Can i take amoxycilin clav 875-125mg with common cold medicine acetaminophen/dextromethorphan/phenylephrine to lessen the effects of throat infection ?

Evertime I give my daughter an OTC containing acetaminophen,phenylephrine HCI,dextromorphan HBr she gets a rash. Why? Instructions say go to E.R..

Allergy?: It is certainly possible that your daughter has an allergy to one of the ingredients in the medication.
