My son is 9 months and i went to change his clothes and he has lil red bumps on his back. Im lost as to where they would come from. He is on a antibiotic but has had it before and has been on it for 4 days. and the only thing new he ate was multi cheerios last night and a glazed donut  this morning but neither of those would do that i wouldnt think.

Is it amoxicillin?  Watch him closely to make sure it doesn't spread.  Even though he's had the antibiotic before, doesn't mean he isn't having a reaction to it.  Also, an allergic reaction to a new food can be from anything.  Don't discount the cherrios or the donut.

Anything penicillin related is something to watch.  It is the most common med that people react to and the reaction can be anything from a mild reaction to a not-so-mild reaction.  And it needs to build up in the system before a reaction occurs.  So 4 days would be long enough.  But it will spread if that's what it is.  If it doesn't spread, it's something simple, like heat rash.

My son is allergic to azithromiacine (so?) His rash was flat and blotchy head to toe. Does it look like that? If its flat and not raised its more likely an allergic reaction

I agree. Im terribly allergic to amoxicillin, I bread out in red dots everywhere that are extremely itchy.

Outside of that, id say heat rash or yeast.
