Was on prednisone for a supposed allergic reaction to amoxicillin (took only 3) now on bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) (4th day) and rash is coming back. Any ideas?
Allergy to medicine: Amoxicillin commonly causes a rash, called a drug eruption. The drug should be stopped and never used again. If the rash is severe, than Prednisone can be given, which suppresses the allergy until it goes away by itself. If you stopped the Prednisone too soon, the rash can come back, or you may now be allergic to bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim), (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) a sulfa drug that also causes many allergies. You should avoid bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). ...Read more

My 11 month old son was diagnosed with an ear infection 2 days ago and was prescribed amoxicilin today I notice a rash on his face is this an allergic reaction?
Possibly: Most rashes while on antibiotics are more likely due to the body fighting off the infection than a reaction to the antibiotic. Having said this, i recommend discussing this with the prescribing physician and having the rash examined. Do not discontinue any medication without advise from his physician. Consult an allergist for possible testing if the rash is believed to be allergic in nature. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
