Rash on my baby's legs?? *pics*

I took her to the doctor for a yeast infection earlier this week. She has been on an antibiotic ointment and a prescription by mouth for it. Well, after day 2 of the medication she developed a rash on her legs. I called the doctor and he said that it is probably just a reaction to being sick. ...but she was sick 2 weeks ago. And she only vomitted twice and nothing else. I am just concerned because it is day 3 and the rash has spread even worse on her legs. Is this part of the yeast infection?? Or a reaction?


It's hard to see on camera. Sorry.

Yeah, I am worried it's the medication..but the nurse on the phone said keep it up. It seems to be getting worse. Yesterday they were tiny red dots, now they're raised.

Quoting MrsNewman:

If it continues to get worse I would stop the medication and take her back in.

Looks like hives. I get them if I take penicillin.

I would call your doctor again and explain how the rash looks and that it is getting worse and spreading. That looks like a reaction to somthing for sure and since it's probably the only thing different going on with your little one, it's probably to the oinment or meds.
