I'm allergic to any type of the Cilins, my BF is on amoxicillin. Could I have a reaction from kissing or sexual intercourse with him?

Possibly: I would say the oral route would be the most likelihood of any allergen as some of the tablet could have come off in his mouth/saliva. So avoid it for the duration of the medicine. Once absorbed it is less likely you will get an allergic reaction from vaginal sex. Good luck ...Read more
