Urticaria: likely related to the antibiotics. Notify the prescriber for management

Need allergy testing: Your body has to have an initial exposure to the drug to develop allergic reaction. This can take time to develop. The symptoms likely started after several doses and then escalated rapidly as your body increased the reaction. Also, this may be more of an adverse reaction to the med. rather than allergy. You need allergy testing
