How do you get a rash with tonsillitis?

Several ways: Tonsillitis is inflammation (redness, swelling, pain) and/or infection of the tonsils, which can be due to viruses, bacteria, or other germs. Antibiotics to treat tonsil infections sometimes cause rashes. Viruses can cause rashes by themselves or in combination with antibiotic usage. Strep throat causes strep scarlet fever, a well-known rash that feels rough and looks like many tiny reddish dots.

Rash and tonsillitis: Strep tonsillitis can have a rash associated with it but it is sandpapery in texture and in the warm areas of the body (groin axilla etc.). Sometimes Amoxicillin can cause a fine rash but usually about seven days into treatment. Finally if it was not proven strep it could have been a viral tonsillitis and some viruses can cause a rah. Lastly antibiotic allergy can cause a rah. Talk to your M.D.

Viral rash: This could be a simple viral rash or it could be a reaction to the antibiotics. If it is accompanied by fever, vomiting, neck stiffness it can be worrying as it is difficult to rule out meningitis. In short it needs an examination by a doctor to comment on the cause of the rash.
