Kellan was on amoxicillin from Jan 29-Feb 8. Yesterday he woke up from his nap with hives
Now, I chalked it up to the amoxicillin or the cold he was getting over(pneumonia) because his brother was the same after being on amoxicillin the first time. So last night I was going to give him an oatmeal bath but it ended up going away on its own before that happened.
This morning was fine, no hives or rash, he does have a bit of a teething rash around his mouth from all the drool.
He took a nap and now they're back and worse. Its all over his body and the back of his head. 2 little hives on his cheek though. But the ones on his body look like this
I'm stumped. Why are they showing up after his nap? He hasnt had any new foods, we've been keeping him on a brat diet after the amoxicillin gave him diarrhea and hes used to all those foods. No new soaps in his bath or to wash the clothes.
I was trying to do a bit of my own research online and most posters are saying this would have to be his second time taking the amoxicillin for it to be a reaction to that. So what could it be? I'm so confused. He isnt showing any discomfort and his breathing is fine, that was my first concern because I will take him to the ER if that seems to become difficult for him.
Any ideas? Been here before?
