Your baby has developed an allergy to the antibiotic. She has developed a skin rash called hives or urticaria. Stop the antibiotic and give her a probiotic such as Reuteri drops 1ml daily for 10 days. She needs an antihistamine syrup to clear her rash. Give her 2.5ml of Zyrtec syrup once daily until her rash clears up.
