An Allergic Reaction

Cole recently had his first ear infection...I have to admit he's been a pretty healthy kid (knock on wood). Go figure that the first time he's been on antibiotics (amoxicillin)though we find he's allergic.

He developed a bit of a rash the 2nd day he was on the medicine. He had his 15 month check up two days later though, and the rash was gone. We continued the meds, but by day 8 of the dose he broke out in a nasty rash from head to toe. I called the pediatrician and he advised us to remove him from the meds.

Poor guy. At his follow-up appointment they put a big red sticker on his chart, flagging him as allergic :(
