Is there anything over-the counter that I can give my 14 month old son to get rid of hives?

Posted by gkts05

He broke out into hives after he started taking omoxicillin for an ear infection.

Yes, Benadryl at the recommended dose should take care of the hives. Do not give him any more amoxicillin. Tell your doctor what happened and be sure they make a note of the allergy in your son's file. Your doctor will prescribe an antibiotic from a different family, but still be allert for signs of allergy since it is common to be allergic to multiple medicines. I hope your son feels better soon!
