Could a lip blister be an allergic reaction to amoxicillin?

Probably not

Amoxicillin
If you had an allergic reaction to something it would probably be more than a single blister. Allergic reactions create all kinds of signs...like overall bumps on your body, tongue swelling or worst of all...anaphylactic reaction which could be deadly. If you think you are allergic to Amoxicillin...put it down on your health history for the doctor. And if you wish go to an allergist for testing

Dr sent us to pharm to get Zyrtec for our 7mo daughter's allergic reaction to Amoxicillin. Pharm didn't like the plan. Possible negative effects?

In general, your doctor will know what is best for you more than the pharmacist. It sounds like your doc thought your daughters reaction was quite mild and didn't require stronger medication. JUst make sure the child is getting better and not worse, particularly with respect to any difficulty breathing.

Two year old had allergic reaction to amoxicillin. Dr replaced it with cefprozil. Instruct on cefprozil say not to take it if allergic to penicillin?

Old concern

Penicillin
The caution on cephalosporins if penicillin allergic dates back decades to how they were produced--there often was PCN in the cephalosporins as a byproduct. Even then, risk was rare and TINY. Now even smaller, and far better to not exclude two huge antibiotic categories at young age if don't need to. Keep an eye on child as with any medication, but should not pose a problem.

Was on Prednisone for a supposed allergic reaction to Amoxicillin (took only 3) Now on Bactrim (4th day) and rash is coming back. Any ideas?

Allergy to medicine

Prednisone
Amoxicillin commonly causes a rash, called a Drug Eruption. The drug should be stopped and never used again. If the rash is severe, than prednisone can be given, which suppresses the allergy until it goes away by itself. If you stopped the prednisone too soon, the rash can come back, or you may now be allergic to Bactrim, a Sulfa drug that also causes many allergies. You should avoid Bactrim.

Possible to have an allergic reaction to ceclor and amoxicillin?

Yes

Amoxicillin
Allergies to penicillins (including amoxicillin) are more common than allergies to cephalosporins (including Ceclor), but you can be allergic to either or both. A small percentage of people who have penicillin allergies are also allergic to cephalosporins.
