No: Allergic reactions to clindamycin are uncommon with the most common reaction being a maculopapular rash. Skin testing and/or patch testing is not helpful in evaluating this allergy. You are free to take all other drugs as clindamycin does not have cross-reactivity with other antibiotics. Would suggest seeing Allergist to confirm that you are truly allergic.

A 46-year-old female asked:
I am allergic to vancomycin. Is it safe for me to take clindamycin?

Probably: These are not known to cross react. Hopefully the clindamycin is the proper antibiotic for the infection that you apparently have. You should ask this question of the physician who prescribed the clindamycin.
