Don't stop early: It's never a good idea to stop taking antibiotics early w/o physician telling you to do so.

If the reaction is just a skin rash, it would be your choice to use condom or not. ...Read more

You can use that as a guide to the kind of treatment you will need. If your reaction was severe, go the er, by ambulance if you have no one to drive you. Discuss with your doctor beforehand, not everyone who thinks they are allergic to penicillin actually is. ...Read more

Depends what for: For instance cipro, (ciprofloxacin) zithromycin ; Nitrofurantoin would both be quite safe. Cephalosporins, such as Keflex or suprax are probably safe, but there is some cross-reactivity at times between penillins ; cephalosporins. Trimthoprim without sulfa would also be ok but bacrtim or septra because they contain sulfa. ...Read more
