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?
