If you suspect an allergy, stop giving it immediately!
Hives were my first symptom of a penacillin (sp) allergy. With every dose it can get worse. The hives can spread to her throat and cut off her air passage. I don't want to be alarmist, but please, please, please, don't give another dose. Talk to the doc about another antibiotic if she still needs it. You will want to stay away from all antibiotics in the penicillin/amoxicillin family.
