Can Zantac For Babies Cause Hives Or Rashes?

my grandson was put on baby zantac for reflux and he broke out in hives all over. the dr. says it is not the medicine. your opinion please.

Answer

Hi Shelley,

While hives is not a typical reaction to the drug Zantac, apparently it can happen and is considered a serious side effect. You can read about all of the side effects of Zantac here. If you think the Zantac is the problem, you should ask your doctor to prescribe an alternative.

Please stay in touch and let us know how you and your grandson are doing!
