Seek wisdom: Rashes are a large part of pediatric care. Common dilemma is that viruses often cause harmless rashes (exanthums), but drugs used to treat secondary ear infections, sinusitis, etc. can be serious. Appearance, timing of rash is important. Recognition by a seasoned provider can be enormously reassuring. Allergists are called upon for diffucult rashes and can test for certain drug allergies. ...Read more

Was on prednisone for a supposed allergic reaction to amoxicillin (took only 3) now on bactrim (4th day) and rash is coming back. Any ideas?

Was on prednisone for a supposed allergic reaction to amoxicillin (took only 3) now on bactrim (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, a sulfa drug that also causes many allergies. You should avoid bactrim. ...Read more

Call your doctor: call the doctor who prescribed the antibiotics. Not all rashes are the same. They look different and can be caused by different things depending on if your child has had the antibiotic before and how many dishes the child has taken. Rashes in a child may be due to a virus and not antibiotics. Call your doctor. ...Read more
