  • What's your question??? My kids have taken that and have never had a issue.

  • Then maybe you should tell your doctor that he's had a reaction so that the doc can prescribe something else. Did you do that? I've never, ever had this issue with any of my four kids. One has an allergy to amoxicillin, but that's something entirely unrelated to dye.

  • Umm, thanks for the PSA? So, if you know that's what the issue is, why are you still letting him take it?

  • Found a new site, joined it, somehow found answers right away, just to post this? Most of us are quite aware of the dye issues thanks to (oh boy, I'm gonna get the wrong screen name here) fiatpax (???) - red 40 makes my oldest crazy wild.

    SOME children have issues with food dyes


    actually SOME people do


    if you know an adult that gets a lot of migraines, have them cut ALL of these food dyes out for a month- see if they have less migraines or any

  • and you'll find several many children react this way


    (but not all)


     


    however even if your child shows no reaction to this, why would you want your child to eat coal tar or petroleum

  • Doesn't it only have red dye in it if you choose the "flavored" liquid amoxocillin or in pill form?
    I know I've had to get it for my kids before and it was a milky white color.
