Are rashes on the stomach after taking APAP tablets a cause of concern?

My daughter has been taking hydroco/apap since Thursday May 11 for pain from getting her tonsils taken out, she has developed a rash on her stomach, side and back and it is itching. This is the only side effect from the list of this medicine she is having. Should I take her to the ER.

The symptoms seems to be related to an allergic reaction. Some advice that I can give to you are:

-give antihistamines daily
-use Calamine lotion for local relief.

I have been taking oral 500 mg Naproxen along with Endone for severe sciatic pain. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, Coeliac Disease, Hashimoto s, chronic anaemia, and chronic gastritis. The gastritis flares up terribly even after 1 dose of Naproxen. I already take Zoton Fastabs twice a day. Naproxen as suppository has not been available here for a long time. Can I take the oral tablets rectally to attempt to bypass my stomach problems? I have been reading the absorption this way is similar to oral, but I am concerned about causing problems.
