    Replied by Pharmacist @ IDM
    An ampicillin, amoxicillin, or Augmentin rash is a non-allergic rash that occurs when a child is taking one of these medicines. The rash usually appears on the 5th day after the child starts taking the medicine, but may appear earlier or as late as the 16th day.Symptoms of the rash include:Pink or red spots,Small, flat, nonitchy spots,Always on the main body (trunk),May spread to the face.5% to 10% of children taking ampicillin or amoxicillin get a skin rash. This is a harmless rash and does not mean that your child has an allergy to ampicillin, amoxicillin, or other penicillin drugs. An allergic reaction would cause hives or more severe symptoms than a rash. Often it is caused by a viral infection such as Roseola.
