Posted on Thu, 26 Apr 2018 in Child Health
Question: Granddaughter, 2 years old, has been taking cimetidine for warts for over 2 weeks; has spotty vaginal bleeding, some rectal x 2 days so stopped the cimetidine after seeing bleeding as a side effect; Had seen a doctor 11/15 for a rash - negative for Strep, and was prescribed amoxicillin but daughter-in-law didn't start it. Wondering if she should take the amoxicillin Child has high energy level and eating O.K.

Detailed Answer:
Hello. I just read through your question.

There is no need to take the amoxicillin. A bacterial illness was not found and so the amoxicillin will not do anything to help.
