The dr gave my baby an antibiotic, Trimox, to treat a mild ear infection. The only reason they gave it is because she had the polio vax on MOnday and was already having a tuff time of things with fevers, loss of appetite, and becoming lethargic. Anyway, within 30 minutes of taking the Trimox last night she broke out in a red blotchy rash on her face and her fever started up again. This morning the rash was also in patches on her arms, legs, and torso. I talked to the physicians assistant on the phone, he said she may be allergic to the antibiotic and to not give her anymore and to bring her in first thing Monday. Is it very common for a child to react to antibiotics this way? What do dr's give when a child can't take antibiotics? I should mention my baby also has inherited my immune disorder, psoriasis.
