Amoxicillin can commonly cause a mild rash that is usually not serious. However, you may not be able to tell it apart from a rare rash that could be a sign of a severe allergic reaction. Therefore, seek immediate medical attention if you develop any rash.
However it is recommended to check with your pharmacist/doc. hope this is of help, best of luck.
Amoxycillin is a moderate-spectrum, bacteriolytic (antibiotic) used in the treatment of bacterial infections caused by susceptible microorganisms... Common side effects are: nausea, vomiting, rashes, and antibiotic-associated colitis. Loose bowel movements (diarrhea) also may occur. In persons allergic to beta-lactam class antibiotics, the side effects are far more severe and require emergency medical attention: change in mental state; skin rash with intense itching (often beginning in fingertips and around groin area and rapidly spreading) and sensations of fever, nausea, and vomiting... 3-10% of children who have never taken a "cillin" antibiotic will develop a rash within 72 hours os starting amoxicillin (this is not considered an allergic reaction - just an uncommon side effect)... Hope this helps, Colin M. Zimmermann
