Patient :My 11 month old has been ill for 12 days. Started with tonsillitis and was given a course of amoxicillin. 7 days into treatment she developed a rash starting on her neck face and behind her ears then to her torso and now spreading down her legs. At the same time the rash appeared she developed a runny nose and chesty cough. Two visitors at our home have both been diagnosed with strep throat. Should she be reassessed at the clinic or do you think it is viral?
