    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Drug allergy

    My one year old has taken amoxicillin 4 times. He's never had any issues. Three days ago he was prescribed it again for an ear infection. We have seen no improvement in his symptoms. Pulling at ears, loss of appetite, fatigue, and irritability. Shortly after starting the Amoxicillin he developed what almost looks like a prickly heat rash head to toe. Doc thinks an allergic reaction to Cillins! My eldest son may have Mono at the same time! Wouldn't my son had a reaction previously if truely allergic to amoxicillin? My other concern is his infection has apparently resolved yet he is symptomatic yet! Any thoughts?
