A trip to the ER: Blisters forming on mucous membranes (such as the inside of your mouth and lips) and/or elsewhere on your body could be signs of a serious reaction to a medication such as your antibiotic. Please look up Stevens - Johnson Syndrome for one example of many possible types of reactions. I recommend an urgent evaluation, preferably in the Emergency Department.
