If there's an associated rash with the generalized itching it would almost be certain that you've developed an allergic reaction to medication, most commonly the antibiotic. If so, be sure to find out what the antibiotic is so you'll not take it again & it also goes on your record. A rash may not appear with an allergic reaction though. Notify your MD about your symptoms & get instructions.
