Treatment for ear infection and headache

hello, I have an ear infection that started as a headache. My doctor prescribed penicillin which I have been taking for two days now. Since than, I continue having a headache and now there is a rash in the same place as the headache. Should I be concerned?

I am sorry for the symptoms you are suffering
Ear infection can provoke headache so I don't think you have reason to worry too much as you started antibiotics
The rush you are suffering may be due to infection too
In my opinion you have to be sure if it is rash or not?
I would reccomend to contact an infections just to exclude herpes virus
Hope my answer will help you
Best regards
