A few weeks ago I was sick and was prescribed Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium tablets 875/125 mg to take twice a day. They worked fast and I didn't feel the need to complete the treatment.

I woke up with horrible throat pain a couple of nights ago, it would not let me sleep! the next 2 days were hell. I remembered I had the meds and decided to take them. The problem? After that last time that I took them, we discovered that our 21 month old baby is allergic to penicillin. He had been taking it, because he was sick and a few days after starting he started to have a reaction. My mother in law and my own mother are very allergic to it.

I can't hold my baby!!! I started to take the meds and didn't think that it could affect my son, but it did. Being in contact with me triggered his allergy and I have not been able to touch him. I have stopped the medication, but need to know how long before I can hold my baby again?

Hello, Alma! How are you?

Your taking a medication should not trigger your son's allergies, especially since you said his was to Penicillin, but you took Amoxicillin, which is a different medication. It should not be possible for you to secrete enough through your skin to cause a problem in your infant, as reported by the NIH.

For example, there are several medications that I am dangerously allergic to, but it doesn't matter if my husband, son, or mother-in-law takes them.

I think the best thing to do would be to speak with your doctor, or your son's pediatrician about this matter, because that is just not how medication allergies work. They should be able to help you understand and figure out what the actual problem is that has occurred.

What type of reaction did your son experience?
