Bx said spongiotic dermatitis drug reaction likely. EM type rash only on extremities, hands/feet extreme itch and blisters several days after augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). Never had allergy. Why such delayed reaction.?

I just finished amoxicillin for strep/sinus issued last week now I'm all congested again! Thinking its allergy related, any OTC could help?

I just finished amoxicillin for strep/sinus issued last week now I'm all congested again! Thinking its allergy related, any OTC could help?

Consider consult: Hard to know without more information. Allergy is possible, but so is inflammation from a partially treated infection. Sometimes a longer course of antibiotics is necessary for true bacterial sinus infection, particularly if there was initial improvement. Sometimes a short prednisone course is given to resolve inflammation and improve efficacy of the antibiotic. Consider a consult to discuss. ...Read more

Itchy hives from amoxicillin allergy - do I need to do anything or just take claritin (loratadine)?

Itchy hives from amoxicillin allergy - do I need to do anything or just take claritin (loratadine)?

Depends on severity: Claritin (loratadine) or zyrtec will help with the itching; a more severe rash may require treatment with prednisone. In most cases, the rash simply goes away within a few days of stopping the antibiotic. Treatment for the rash simply depends on how badly it bothers you. At any rate, you need to stop the antibiotic and notify your doctor if you get a rash while taking it. ...Read more

If a child doesn t have penicillin allergy and when he took augmantin 400 he had skin redness on neck can he took amoxicillin 250?

If a child doesn t have penicillin allergy and when he took augmantin 400 he had skin redness on neck can he took amoxicillin 250?

Might not: If it was true penicillin allergy and your child develops skin rashes to augmentin, (amoxicillin and clavulanate) he should not take amoxicillin, a synthetic penicillin. Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) contains Amoxicillin and clavulanate. However, most of the time, childhood penicillin allergy is not true allergy. A viral exanthem might occur at the same time that the child takes penicillin. An allergist can help you figure this out. ...Read more
