Tiny Red spots on body K and M's Mommy Due July 8; 2 kids; Cincinnati, Ohio 1425 posts

I just noticed this morning that my 11 month old has little red spots around her diaper area and on her lower back and stomach. She has been on antibiotics for a week today and has been battling a double ear infection and some kind of virus. Could this be from the Amoxicillin or do you think it is something else?

Possible yeast infection from the antibiotics.

Sounds like Roseola. It comes after a fever for a couple days..It's the "end" of a virus...There's nothing to do, it will go away on it's own in a few days.



ETA: Roseola usually starts around the torso. Sometimes spreading, sometimes not.



My 2 year old had it 2 months ago. Unfortunately, it ended up covering his entire body. Face an all. But as long as their is no itching or discomfort you're fine

Does she have other symptoms..like high fever, dizziness, sensitivty to light and sound. Ear infections can cause meningitis and red spots are common symtpoms of meningitis.

After reading all the different things it could be I'd call her pedi just to be safe.

Oh good she did have a fever a few days ago so that makes sense. She has not had a fever since then so hopefully this means that we are finally turning the corner on this infection/virus.
