Hi! Welcome to HCM and thank you for your question. It is possible that your daughter is having an allergic reaction to Amoxicillin. This can appear suddenly and can occur even after the duration of the treatment. I would suggest that you let her stop taking the antibiotics and see her doctor again as soon as possible so that the appropriate management can be initiated.

This is important - You and your daughter have to be very vigilant and observe for any progression of her allergic reaction, which can include lightheadedness, confusion, anxiety, sensitivity to lights and sounds, fever, nausea and vomiting. The appearance of any of these symptoms require immediate medical care.

I hope I was able to answer your query. If you have any further questions, please contact me here:

Take care!
