Systemic evaluation: You need an evaluation for a systemic problem, The hives can be an allergic reaction to the antibiotics or it may be part of a systemic illness.

Can high blood pressure and low iron cause swelling on the hands and feet with a rash on the hands ?

So consult your md/allergist/rheumatologist, some one. ...Read more
