I've always taken amoxicillin since I was little took last year n had hand redness n itching up arms face was burning is this reaction n safe to take?

Itching amox: I would not take it again. Follow up with an allergist for penicillin allergy testing.

Please tell every doctor you go to that the last time you took amoxicillin you had itching and a rash, it is very important. Drug allergies can be fatal. ...Read more

Noticed that when I stop running, put hands to my side, & start walking my hands feel puffy, turn red & white dotted. Put hands over head to stop it.

May be normal: When you exercise, the blood vessels in your skin dilate to get rid of the heat generated by the muscle activity. The dilated blood vessels can cause puffiness. When you put your hands over head, that decreases the pressure in the veins. If it persists or is very annoying see a doctor to make sure there is no problem with your circulation. ...Read more
