    Son with rash
    jennifersn posted:
    My son is currently on omeprazole. He is scheduled for an endoscopy in March. 7 weeks of this medication. He has broken out in a horrible, itchy rash all over his body. We have tried everything such as eliminating foods, giving him benadryl, etc, but the rash continues on and gets worse. He's already had an allergy test done. Only peanuts showed up positive. He has been sick off and on for a few months now with a lot of vomiting. Hence, this is why we scheduled the endoscopy so they can scope him. But the rash is a huge mystery. Can he possible be allergic to something in the medication? is there a way to post a picture?

    My first thought was that he is allergic to the meds. What does your doctor say? Is there a different drug they can put him on that will be just as effective?
