I have been researching this heavily this week as my 2 year old grandson had a severe reaction to amoxicllin. His entire body is covered with target like itchy red spots. He has had pain in his leg joints. His ankles began swelling. Now his little face has swelled up and looks like he was the punching bag for a boxer. He had been running a low grade fever but it has shot up to over 104 a few times. They have had him to the ER and to their pediatrician. One wanted to give him a steroid drug but another did not. Then at the pediatrican's office one of the doctors gave his mommy a prescription and said if she felt like whe wanted to use it to use it. Everything I have read on EM talks about the rash. I have not read anything about the swelling and the fever. Anyone familiar with this or these symptoms? Thanks.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
