erythromycin allergy symptoms?

The usual culprits: The causes of allergy are many but the symptoms are predictable & limited. Hives, swelling of hands, feet, eyelids & lips called angioedema, breathing issues due to windpipe swelling or asthma & GI symptoms like nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain & diarrhea. Since Erythromycin commonly causes GI symptoms it's hard to tell if this is allergy or intolerance when skin or breathing symptoms are absent.
