My five month old began with a fever of 100.5 (under the arm) and congestion. Took him to the Doc. and the Doc said it looked like bacterial throat infection because swollen lymph nodes and really red throat (did not test for it). So he gave us amoxocillan but after 3 doses my 5 month old broke out in a rash from neck to groin area. I called nurse she said to stop meds maybe allergic reation. But today my little one looks fine he still has congestion and red throat but no fever. Rash does look darker though, So I am beginning to think he has a viral infection. Not sure what to do since nearest hospital is more than an hour away and his Doc is out of town for a week. Should I just watch him!!
