Is it normal for your child to get a rash after a fever?

The doctor said my son has strep throat and he had a high fever for almost 4 days...last night he started sweating and now his temp is down...when he woke up from his nap this afternoon he was sweating and covered in a rash, just wondering if this is normal?

  • I am just hoping it is not an allergic reaction to the amoxicilin.

  • Yes, rash is very typical with infections in the throat. My dd had an infection, not strep, but an infection and had a rash and fever for about 4 days... I used aveno anti itch cream for the rash the doctors didnt say to, but it looked so uncomfortable.

  • Best to get it checked out. Some infections can cause a rash afterwards and other time it's a reaction to the medicine. I once had a rash after I stopped an antibiotic. It turned out to be an allergic reaction.
