Antibiotics

My daughter has had about 4 ear infections so far in her short 10 month life. They say it is hereditary (sp?) like I when I was little finally had to have tubes, lucky her. Well everytime we have gotten antibiotics for this first amoxicillin, then augmentin, then amoxicillin, and now again augmentin. This time though she has developed a whole body rash from cheeks all the way down the trunk of her body. Could this be an allergy? I am taking her back to the dr to get different medicine but in the mean time I wanted opinions or if anyone else went through this at all? Thanks guys!

If she has an all body rash, it is probably an allergic reaction. We found out my daughter was allergic to penicillin after she broke out in a rash all over her body (and this was the second time she had the penicillin, the first time she showed no reaction). Good luck.
