My ds is almost 12 months old (in a week) he was weighed yesterday at the ER, he's 20 lbs. He had an ear infection and was given Amoxicillin last week, now he ended up with Hives head to toe and a fever of 103!! We rushed to the ER and they concluded an allergy to Amoxicillin. The Dr. gave us a prescription to Benadryl - 1 tsp every 6 hours. Does that sound right?
I was searching on online and most moms say they only give 1/4 tsp - 1/2 tsp
I don't want to give him too much, but I also don't want ds to suffer!
How long until the hives go away? Thanks!
