Welcome to HCM
Megamox is an antibiotic containing amoxicillin, a penicillin derivative.
Some people are allergic to penicillin and so they have side effects like rash, itching or diarrhoea etc .on consuming amoxicillin.
Please do not panic, if she has no other symptoms only rash then its not worrisome.just keep your baby well hydrated, well fed and you can give her anti histaminics, antiallergen syrup as per your doctors advice if she has itching.mild calamine lotion may provide soothing effect.
The rash wil resolve on its own in two three days after the antibiotic is stopped.
If she has any other symptoms like breathing difficulty, or swelling or fever kindly consult your doctor promptly.
Thank you
