Many prescription and non-prescription medicines can cause a rash. A few common examples are:
Aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), and naproxen (Aleve).
Pain medicines, such as codeine.
If a rash occurs after your child has begun a new medicine:
Stop giving the medicine to your child.
Call the doctor who prescribed or recommended the medicine to determine if another medicine needs to be prescribed.
