In brief: Stop Amoxicillin

It is not uncommon for a patient with infectious mononucleosis to develop a rash if they are given Amoxicillin or similar antibiotic.
To treat, stop the offending antibiotic and give an antihistamine like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or zyrtec/ Cetirizine to decrease itching.
