It's always something right?

My kids are certainly proving this true lately. So you know last week my oldest was diagnosed with strep. Yesterday he suddenly broke out in hives all over. They're still there so we took him to the pedi today. He's having an allergic reaction to the amoxicillin. Apparently it typically shows itself on day 8 or 9 and he's right there. Thank goodness for Benadryl.

Oh no, that's so miserable coming right on top of strep! :-( Hope it clears up soon.

How is he feeling other than the rash?  Mono can present as a rash while on amox for strep.  If he's still looking ran down and puny, you might want to ask for the mono blood test.   ITs probably just an allergic reaction, but if it is mon he will need to slow down for a few weeks.
