Additional Thoughts
My daughter is almost 3 she took the meds for 10 days,then a day later she started to break out in bumps like an insect bite( i thought she had chicken pox) the next day it started to spread into more bumps then a nasty red rash. The doctor prescribed a Orapred ODT (dissolving steroid) and Hydroxyzine (sort of like Benedryl but with sedating effects) to counter act the reaction.
