Rash around mouth

On antibiotics for cut toe pad; followed by staff infection (textbook pink inflamed balloon paw). Itching from day 2or3; developed to inflamed swollen rash around mouth. How can you tell of rash is from skin infection vs amoxicillin reaction?
Solution:
It is unlikely she would develop inflammation and a rash around the mouth from a skin infection transferred from the pad cut.. Is anything else being applied to the cut toe that she may be licking off? Amoxil can cause an allergic reaction, usually more like hives, with laboured breathing and perhaps vomitting and diarrhorea in more sever case. The best way to test if the antibiotic is invloved is of course to stop administering it and see if the signs subside. If the pad infection remains severe obviously it would be best to consult your vet and perhaps change to a different class of antibiotic.
