Hi,
This seems due to antibiotic. after antibiotic medicines intestinal flora are disturbed so diarrhea take place.Another thing is that you are allergic to antibiotic which you have used leading to skin rashes.
Consult your doctor and take his opinion.A course of anti allergic like cetrizine and smoothing cream on local part will cure your problem.
