2 doctors agree

In brief: Many Others

Depending on the type of infection being treated, clindamycin, zithromax, or even a cephalosporin-class antibiotic like Keflex (some people allergic to penicillin are also allergic to cephalosporins though) could be used.

Keflex is not a good choice if truly allergic to amoxicillin. A third-gen cephalosporin such as cefdinir is a safer choice
