Thank you sharing your problem.In your child"s case rash is more likely due to Amoxicillin .Any drug can cause allergic rash as a matter of fact.In a viral disease called Infectious Mononucleosis administration of amoxicillin is known to cause rash.And many viral fevers cause rash during the course of illness and they may also be noticed after medications by chance

Hello Dr. Grief My daughter has had some type of allergic reaction recently. She has a rash that started on her arm and has since spread over her body. She went to the emergency room two nights in a row and the doctors have said that it could possibly be insects maybe dust mites or bed bugs. They treated her with antibiotics and a topical cream. Her apartment manager called Terminix and they could not find anything. What do you suggest we do?

about 3 months ago I raked by leg across a metal bar, but it didn t break my skin and i deep painful bruise began about a months later a strange rash broke out around the area and it started to spread around the bruised area. The rash looks a lot like my mom psoriosis (I am not sure I am spelling that right). The rash occassionally hurts pretty deep and it itches at times. I have tried triple antibiotic cream. It will seem to start to heal and go away then flares back up. Now a very simular rash has spread to my leg, but that rash is not at all painful

Our family is all taking Malarone as we went to an island with the potential for malaria. We have all come down with various rashes. One on the back of the thigh (painful and two red stripes), the others behind the knees and in the armpits. This has never happened to us before. Could this be from the medication, sun, or something like ringworm or scabies?

This morning, after getting out of the shower I flatuated and watery bowels secreted from my anus. I did not think much of it, cleaned up, and went out for a cigarette. I came back inside and sat down at my computer and immediately felt horrible. I started into a cold sweat--sweating profusely. I called my dad and as soon as he answered I started dry-heaving. Any ideas as to what caused this? I m 16 years old on a daily dose of Nortriptaline(10 mg before bed) and Lexapro (10mg before bed). My doctor just upped my dosage of Lexapro from 5mg to 10mg not too long ago as well.

My 9yrold son was treated for strep throat/scarlet fever yesterday morning. He had been fevering, vomiting,sore throat, rash and headache since Saturday. He s taken 4 doses of amoxicillan now. His fever stayed down so far today, but his rash is everywhere now and itching. He has started complaining that his scrotum is sore to the touch and when he urinates (and the area is very red and inflamed with rash). So, his doctors and pharmacists are trying to conclude if it could be related to the strep or if he may be having a reaction to the meds and needs to change to something else. Any insight on the matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
