Treatment & Care
Allergic reactions can be serious and even fatal. If your child has acute symptoms in addition to the rash, such as wheezing, difficulty breathing, tightness in the throat or chest, fainting, nausea, vomiting, or other serious symptoms, call 911 or your child's physician immediately.
Drug rashes usually clear up when your child stops taking the medication that is causing the reaction. Other treatments may include corticosteroids and antihistamines.
