2days ago my 10momth old was prescribed amoxicillin for ear infection today I noticed a rash on the sides of his face. Should I be concerned?
Maybe,maybe not . Rashes occur often in kids and some can be related to antibiotic use. A localized rash, is less likely triggered by ingested antibiotics and more likely a local contact dermatitis. If it spreads to other areas, has a raised nature or a purplish color, it could be the antibiotic and stopping would be appropriate. If it stays in one location, monitor until you can contact the kids doc and discuss it.
