Rash in glandular fever treatment. Close-up of a rash on the skin of a 19-year-old female patient with glandular fever treated with amoxicillin antibiotic. Glandular fever (infectious mononucleosis) is an acute viral infection caused either by the Epstein-Barr virus or cytomegalovirus. Symptoms include high fever, sore throat and swollen lymph nodes and patients frequently feel tired and run-down two or three months after. People with glandular fever are sometimes misdiagnosed with a streptococcal pharyngitis and are given antibiotics such as ampicillin or amoxicillin as treatment. Studies indicate about 80 to 90 percent of patients with acute Epstein Barr virus infection treated with amoxicillin or ampicillin develop a rash like the one shown here.
