Pediatrician 's  Response
The rash with fever could be because of 2 reason one because of some virus and as you said earlier maybe due to amox.However we need to know that earlier has she suffered from allergic rash due to amox or not if it has then in future avoid amox as an antibiotic for her infection .Now as the reports are all negative then we have to give atleast 72hrs for zthromax to act .If fever still continues kindly get her examined by her pediatrician for further investigations and management.
