Bumps on limbs, red, blisters, itching hurting, amoxicillin, augmentin, allergy

Hi. I have little red bumps on my hands and feet that look like little blisters and itch and hurt at the same time. My 7 month old son had them and had an infection and is on ammoxycilin. I think I got what he had and now am on augmenton. He had the same bumps. Could it just be from the virus or do you think it s an allergic reaction to the meds? My son had the bumps before he was on the antibiotic.

From your description,it seems you are suffering from urticaria which is an allergic condition. Allergy may be to intestinal worms, drugs or to anything else which may not be known all the time. If there is no superadded infection like pus dicharge , antibiotics may not be of much use and infact may be a cause for it. Take an antiallergic like allegra or cetrizine and apply calamine lotion for soothing effect. Also, deworm yourself with albendazole.
