Tests

Diagnosing a rash caused by a reaction to medication is complicated. Even a small amount of a drug can cause a major reaction. What's more, the reaction can occur after your child has taken a medication for a long time.

Your child's physician will usually advise you to have your child stop taking any medication that isn't necessary to sustain life. Other medications may be substituted, if possible.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
