Birth Control Pill

Is your son allergic to amoxicillin if he started getting red raised bumps after taking it for three days?

He might be allergic to penicillin and all derivatives of

penicillin (and of the "cillins."). It's best to check with your

pediatrician however. I can't take penicillin. I break out in the

same red bumps. Don't worry though. Penicillin allergy is probably

the most common kind. And there are plenty of other antibiotic-type

medicines out there! Just remind him when he gets older that he's

allergic to penicillin because he will be asked about drug

allergies constantly! ~ T
