Thato, the rash may be due to the infection or another underlying infection, or it may be due to an allergy to the antibiotic. The antibiotics should be finished by the time you get this reply and if it cleared up soon after the antibiotic was finished, you have your answer. If it was one of the children’s diseases (measles, German measles, chicken pox) you will also know by now. It’s something else it’s difficult to say what it is without examining your little one first. The best would be to go back to your doctor and find out what it is. Good luck.
