My son went for his 12 month well baby on May 28th, and they found a double ear infection and prescribed amoxicillin. 4 mL every 12 hours for 10 days...normal stuff, and I've taken amox. all my life and NEVER had a reaction..well about 7 days in my son got some red bumps on his legs and back of his neck...I didn't think anything about it because I put him down for a nap and he was perfect and when I got him up he had the bumps, and it was warm in his room so I figured it was just a heat rash...well over the next 12 hours it got worse, so the next day I took him into the urgent care to be seen and they said that it was a rash from the amox, which i had begun to suspect and they said that it would clear up on its own. that was June 5th, and it's not the 8th, he hasn't had any amox since the night of the 4th and his rash isn't getting any better, if anything it seems like it may be getting redder...has anybody had this happen before, do these rashes get worse before they get better or should I take him in again?
