    My 2 year old daughter had a double ear infection and has not had good luck with amoxicillin so she took this for 10 days and then broke out in a rash with hives all over her body. Freaked me out. Doc didn't say it was from the medicine but clearly it is. She is so sick but it did fix the ear infection. So scary

    After our then 6year old took all 10 days worth of medicine he broke out into a rash, itching, entire body started swelling to the point he could hardly walk! After a trip to after hours and one ER trip they finally told us it was the medicine and to never give him this medicine again. Needless to say I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy.

    Our 11 month old son was prescribed this drug for ear infections after several other antibiotics didn't work. After 2 days of taking the drug, he broke out into hives. I will not recommend this drug to anyone.
