Developed skin rashes as an allergic reaction to amoxicillin. On steroids. Having itchy palms. Related to the allergy?

my 21 year old son took a round of amoxycillin - developed a rash and was told it was a reaction to the medicine, They took him off the amoxycillin and put him on steroid pack for the allergic reaction . Now the rash is gone but he has developed itchy this likely to still be related to the tail end of the allergy?

Hi, Paul,
Thanks for query.
Yes, gradually his allergy will be alright.
Now taper the dose of steroid.
Give him antihistamine like Cetrizine as and when required.
Ok and bye.
