  • It would be a good idea to call the doctor so you don't need to worry anymore. It could be whatever was causing the fever is now coming out in rash, or if it's the med then maybe he shouldn't be taking it. But let the doctor decide about that instead of continuing or stopping it. I hope he feels better soon.

  • Call your Dr, it could be an allergic reaction, best to check and make sure.

  • you should have called your dr at the first sign of a reaction. i'd call him right away or take your child to your local emergency room.
