The : The symptoms you described are very non-specific. This means they can be due to a number of things. A more detailed history and physical by your doctor will hopefully explain your symptoms. As far as the possibilty of pregnancy goes, the symptoms you describe may or may not be an indicator of pregnancy. The only way you will know for sure is to have a pregnancy test done in your doctor's office, or you can buy an over the counter home pregnancy at your local pharmacy. Good luck. ...Read more

On my 10th day of augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate).  I developed an itchy red spot on my jawline last night.  Today I have red itchy bumps across my face and neck.  Worries?

Stop Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate): Skin rash is not an uncommon complication from amoxicillin (present in Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate)) . This is related to a different immune response than the usual drug allergy response. You need to stop the Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). The rash should go away in about a week. If the problem is truly bothersome , a short course of Prednisone may be considered. This does not necessarily mean that you are allergic to penicillin. ...Read more
