I have been ta been taking phenoxymethylpenicillin for four days now I have a flat red blotchy rash on hands and feet and it burns I'm also 12wks preg?

???allergic rxn???

Skin_rash
Penicillins are safe in pregnancy but you could still be allergic to it. I would stop taking it; take 25mg of Benadryl (it may make you sleepy, so don't drive); call & show rash to your OB. If having shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, call 911 immediately & inform your OB. There are many antibiotics which can safely be substituted in pregnancy. Let your OB decide if allergy or just a rxn.

I have a rash under my arms and on my hands and wrists. It's not itchy, just red and blotchy. Could this be part of tonsilitis?

Fever or medications

Hand
Did the rash appear along with a tonsillitis? were you being treated for it? An infection can cause a rash and a medication can cause it too. If you were given an antibiotic and the rash appeared afterwards, call your doctor.

What causes blotchy purple and red hands?

Raynaud's phenomenon

Red_hands
Raynaud's phenomenon is a vasospastic disorder causing discoloration of the fingers, toes, and occasionally other areas. Named after French physician Maurice Raynaud (1834–1881), the phenomenon is believed to be the result of vasospasms that decrease blood supply to the respective regions. Stress and cold are classic triggers.

Allergic reaction

This is probably caused by an allergic reaction to either food, a drug you are taking, or something you came in contact with. See your doctor for treatment.
