Hi dear,

What type of rash you have? Is it on the lips or inside? Any discharge?

An itchy rash there is most commonly caused by vaginal candidiasis- this may be associated with redness of vaginal mucosa (inside) along with some white curd like discharge. This is very common while taking antibiotics for other infections, because of changes in normal flora there.

If confirmed, this can be treated with clotrimazole pessaries, applied once daily for 3-5 days. Your doctor will guide you. Meanwhile, you can take antihistamines like levocetirizine 5mg at night for 5 days to relieve itching

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
