My baby developed a rash after being on amoxicillin all over his whole body even his scalp so I stopped them but then a day later developed what is called purpura rash on his hand and arm which is the same thing you get with meningitis! Ped not concerned as baby appears well. Has anyone else had this happen?

if it is a rash of flat red spots, the size of a pimple, and no other symptoms, then it is an amoxicillin rash, not allergic. just a common side effect of the medication, that no one ever tells you about. my son had the same thing.
