Does amoxicillin turn your tongue yellow? How can this be prevented?

Why amoxicillin?: Important questions: who prescribed this medication and why are you taking it? Have you recently started taking it, or for a long time? Are you reasonably healthy, or do you have a compromising medical condition? See whomever prescribed this drug and have them perform a thorough evaluation to determine the best course for your treatment. If it is like the photo, that is fungus overgrowth.

My tongue is white for about 2 weeks and I have 2 spots on my right tonsil and I was tested for strep and I had no strep. I'm on amoxicillin?

Ask your Dr.: If you were seen by someone for these symptoms, the doctor who actually saw you and prescribed the antibiotics can answer all your related questions the best. Why ask someone over the internet who knows nothing about you and your medical history and can't examine you rather than your own doctor? If you can't get your questions answered to your satisfaction, see another doctor.

I have had 7 doses of amoxicillin in last 4 days. Today my tongue feels weird like numb/tingly. Side effect or allergic reaction? Or something else?

I have had 7 doses of amoxicillin in last 4 days. Today my tongue feels weird like numb/tingly. Side effect or allergic reaction? Or something else?

May be allergy: If this is an allergy to penicillin (amino penicillin is amoxacillin) and the tongue is involved, it could lead to angio-neurotic edema of the larynx. I would advise caution and stop the antibiotic and see an allergist to skin test you to rule out allergy to penicillin.

Herpes virus: Your son has herpes virus - most likely type 1 herpes virus that causes ulcers or blisters first 1/2 of tongue and causes swollen gums. The fever to be treated with Motrin or Tylenol (acetaminophen). popsicles, water ice, ice cream, yogurt on cold spoon should keep him hydrated. If he refuses to eat or drink and is peeing less, he may need some lidocaine or magic mouthwash to numb gums and tongue & seen by dr.

Amoxicillin 500 TID x 10 days (day 6) for a tooth infection. Nowhave a deep red area under my tongue with white/yellowish spots that is sore, burns.???

Amoxicillin 500 TID x 10 days (day 6) for a tooth infection. Nowhave a deep red area under my tongue with white/yellowish spots that is sore, burns.???

Antibiotic: I assume the red area under your tongue is in proximity to the infected tooth. Whether or not it is, area should be evaluated by your Dentist. Antibiotic will not cure tooth infection, only reduce the spread of infection until tooth can receive root canal treatment or extraction. If not, when pills run out infection will come roaring back. Please call your Dentist now.

See your doctor: The rash on your body indicates a possible allergy to your medication. Call your doctor as soon as you can. You don't want to mess with an allergic reaction. It couls lead to something much more severe.
