Hi All -
My 4 year old was on his 8th day with Augmentin for an ear infection when he developed hives all over his body. His doc diagnosed this as a penicillin allergy and said it would take a week or so to work through his system. A couple days after the reaction - my DS began having sever joint pain. Mostly in his knees and today also in his arms/elbows. The pain seems to come-on in the early afternoon - his knees have even turned red and hot to the touch. DS is in a lot of pain - can't bear weight on his legs, needs to be carried and held everywhere. When on my lap, his joint pain will be so severe that he winces when I shift my position while holding him. Doc says joint pain is normal part of pen allergic reaction. DH and I are concerned at how much pain DS is in. Has anyone else experienced this with an allergic reaction??
