Pimples on legs. Doc thought folliculitis. Script for amoxicillin. New breakouts all over skin. Had low fever, headache, sore throat. Strep test neg.?

See a doctor. Rashes are very different and require a in person evaluation to accurately diagnose and treat. I would return to the doctor who treated you so he can see the change and adjust your treatment. .

My 3 1/2 year old has strep throat & is now on amoxicillin (day #2). Now I have a bad headache, fever & a sore throat. Is this strep throat now?

Possibly. You do have positive contact...Possibly from kissing your child many times a day as i did when mine were little. Call your doc to have a rapid strep test done in the office... You will have an answer in about 5 minutes. In the meantime, Motrin or excedrine may help with the headaches. Good luck. Read more...
Could be. The family transfer rate runs ~1/4 at this time of the yr. Less likely >24hr of meds but you both may have been exposed to the same source or he could pass it to you before rx. A quick strep test with a culture if that is negative ( few false neg tests occur) will let u know.Great handwashing & lack of oral contact keeps transfer rate down, a difficult thing in families.

Sore throat, headache, neck pain, malaise, & fatigue x15 days. Neg. Strep test, no fever. Taking amoxicillin w/no help. Possible causes?

Needs work-up. For symptoms that are ongoing like that- I think of several possibilities. One would be mono- and that's an easy one (mono-spot test). Not sure if you have risk factors for HIV but I would test you for that too. Other viruses such as enterovirus or adenovirus could cause these symptoms, but usually not this long. REST may help you. Would check back with doc prescribing Amoxicillin-probably stop it. Read more...

Sore throat. Did your doctor evaluate you and prescribe the Amoxicillin with funny dosage? Was a strep test done? If the fever and headache are both gone, the fever might have been the cause of the headache. Perhaps strep caused the sore throat since it has gotten better. The intermittent sharp pain (on swallowing?) can be present within 2-3 days after the start of antibiotics. Read more...
