What causes rash on cheeks and arms after taking Amoxicilin and Tylenol?
My son is 4 years old and had his tonsils and adenoids removed yesterday. He was prescribed amoxicilin, tylenol with codiene, and prednosolne. This afternoon I noticed he is developing a rash on his cheeks and arms and I m wondering if this could be a reaction to one of the meds.
Hi, Thanks and welcome to healthcare magic. Amoxycillin an antibiotic may cause rash sometimes as a side reaction. Usually it disappears once the drug is stopped. Prednisolone also clears the rash. Hope this reply is OK for you. Please feel free to ask further queries if any. Dr.M.V.Subrahmanyam.
