Wife Is Allergic To Penicillin Can I Have Sex
If my wife is allergic to penicillin and I take something that has penicillin in it, can we have sex?
Generally: But there will be some penicillin in your semen. If she has had a life-threatening reaction to penicillin, you should abstain; if she had a milder reaction, she should be prepared to experience some vaginal itching after intercourse (assuming, by the fact that you asked the question, that you don't use condoms - if you do, there's no problem). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My wife is severely allergic to penicillin, I stopped my course 4 days ago. Is it ok for us to have sex?
Don't stop early: It's never a good idea to stop taking antibiotics early w/o physician telling you to do so. Stopping early increases risk for developing resistance such that bacteria learn to defend against that particular antibiotic eg penicillin, which won't work in future. Even if wife is severely allergic to penicillin, having sex while/after taking penicillin should not affect her, unless she ingests penicil ...Read more

Possible: Penicillin allergy from sexual contact has been reported although it must be rare as I have not seen a patient reporting this problem. If you have anaphylaxis to penicillin, you should use a condom until 48 hrs after she has completed the course of penicillin just to be safe. If the reaction is just a skin rash , it would be your choice to use condom or not. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

ABCESS, get seen: I recommend getting seen and possibly getting a stat ct scan to look for an organized abcess (pus collection). This abcess may need incision & drainage (w/ cultures) to determine what the best antibiotic choice, however the surgery is usually the proper treatment. High fever, body aches, vomiting are signs of systemic infection (bacteria in blood) so i would go right away! hope your better soon! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Likely, not certain: The majority of people who are told they are allergic to penicillin are not actually so (they get rashes for other reasons, e.g.). Of those that are allergic, about 70% or more will lose the allergy after about 10 years. If you are still allergic, there is about a 10% chance of cross-reaction to 1st-gen cephalosporins like keflex. An allergist can perform testing to judge your risk for a reaction. ...Read more
Maybe: Penicillins (like amoxil) & cephalosporins (like keflex) are both beta-lactam antibiotics named because of their ringed chemical structure. Allergy to penicillins is sometimes directed against this ring, and an allergic reaction may also occur if a similar antibiotic is taken. It is estimated that about 10% of penicillin-allergic patients are also allergic to cephalosporins like keflex. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
