It : It sounds like this could be an allergic rash. Although I do not know if the Amoxicillin was the cause of the rash, it way well be. From reading this it sounds like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and hydrocortizone cream may not be doing the trick. I don't know if the next to the last line is indicating itching of ears or eyes. If you have swelling of your throat, mouth, tongue or lips or any difficulty with breathing, it would be imperative to be evaluated and treated immediately to ensure that your airway doesn't become compromised. I normally ask my patients to stop a medication if they appear to be having an allergic reaction. As a doctor, i want to know right away if my patient has complications with a medication. If your symptoms do not start coming under better control, you may need to be evaluated at the er. ...Read more

See a dermatologist or your general doctor who can prescribe a cortisone cream and stop wearing the earrings till the rash has gone away. You may want to go have patch testing done at a dermatologist office to see if you are allergic to nickel. There are earrings made of titanium is rare to be allergic to. ...Read more

PCOS: Polycysitic ovaries will cause weight gain and a "swollen face." I believe you are also probably functionally hypo-thyroid, even though your blood tests are "normal." Thyroid blood tests are generally a waste of blood. You need Metformin and the herb Berberine for PCOS (500 mg of each, 3 times daily). Get Broda Barnes' book, Hypothyroidism, the Unsuspected Illness. ...Read more
