just itching and they seem to be by my shoulders and neck and on my side. im on cellcept 500mg, prograf 1.5mg prednisone 5mg protonix (kidney and stomach)

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.

As per your description, itchy skin rash is a common adverse effect of Amoxicillin.

Still, other possible differential diagnoses may include Dermatitis, Urticaria.

I would advise you some self-care remedies which you can try.

Cool compresses on the affected site.
An application of OTC Hydrocort ointment on the affected site twice a day.
Take OTC Advil and Allegra/ Benadryl.

Wear loose-fitting cotton fabric.

If your symptoms will not show any improvement then see your doctor for a clinical exam.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
