My 3 year old and 1 year old were dx with double ear infections today. Neither have ever had ATB.
Gave them both first dose right when we got home, around 2pm. Within a couple hours 3 y.o. had hives on cheeks, arms, trunk. Not severe but still obviously there. He’s itching his cheeks too.
I’m in school to be an FNP. 3 semesters left. Work in a CCU currently. Still want to verify though with you all.
Gave him one tab children’s benadryl (12.5mg) he’s 38lbs. Holding tonight’s dose. Calling doc fist thing in AM. Assuming he’ll be marked allergic to penicillins?
Anything I’m missing? We’re now 4 hours out from first dose.
Correct, penicillin allergy. They experienced amoxicillin rash.
You’re right, sorry. Not a doctor, so i conflated terminology. I’m penicillin allergic myself, so I’ve been there. I got those hives when I was 5 or 6 (first time I was given amoxi). We went back to the doc the next day and they changed my prescription.
