antibiotics for toddlers

My 18 mo. old grand-daughter had ear infection and they put her on an antibiotic that makes her nauseated and she can't eat. She also broke out in a rash. They took her off the meds but I think that was knocked out. She developed a bump on her hip they said was mrsa. She had it surgically removed 3 days ago but when changing packing there was some green looking discharge and the doc put her back on the antibiotics for 7 days. She can't eat and is miserable. Is there not a bigger selection of meds to choose that they couldn't try something different or something to accompany it for the nausea?? Anybody?? Thanks.

MRSA is resistant to all but 2 or 3 antibiotics. They really don't have much choice.
I'm so sorry to hear that she is having such a tough time.
