The medicine cleared my 14month old daughters double middle ear infections no problem. However, she has been off of the medicine for 1 week now, and still has diarrhea. Now she has diaper rash and redness on her butt and vaginal area because there is so much stool in her diaper.

Comment:
My 11 month old daughter was prescribed to omnicef after amoxicillan did not cure her ear infection. She was given a dose once a day for 2 days and broke out in a very bad rash from head to toe. She has not taken omnicef in 2 days and is still covered with the rash. She is very very clingly and moody which is not normal fir her at all.
