Depends on reaction: Amoxicillin is a type of penicilin if you have allergic reaction like rash , itching, hives and unexpected swelling of face, lips, tongue.Headaches take 50 mgm of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and it can be repeated every 4 hours and see your doctor asap.Severe reaction may need short corse of corticosteroids diarrhea and abdominal pain are not due to allergy.
