    My son has a chest infection at the moment and he started an antibiotic

    yesterday. Its called Clonamox. I noticed after his first dose he developed

    these hive like spots on his cheeks. They are still there this morning, but

    there is only 1 on each cheek. They are big and red but there is only 2 of

    them.. Would this be a mild reaction do you think?

    Definitely take him to the doctor and make sure you find out what the main ingredient is so you know what he is reacting to for future reference!

    Hope he feels better soon! :hugs:

    Took him back to the doctors this morning. He is allergic to penicillin!

    She prescribed a non penicillin based antibiotic. He has had no reaction to that so far anyway!

    Thanks all xx

    Our LO also reacted to penicillin, they came out in hives, didn't sleep from scratching all night, and also had bad diareoh.

    Glad you got it sorted.

    We always get non-penecillin based antibiotics now. :D

    Yep thats the one he got.. Oh its horrible god love him. And so thick. But i got a syringe out of the chemist so that really helps getting it down really quickly, and he is very good at taking it even though it tastes and smells vile! Hopefully he will perk up soon :thumbup:
