amoxil

Some people can be get allergic reactions to taking Amoxicillin like skin rashes and also diarrhea. My answer is that Amoxicillin should not be used for food poisoning. If you are experiencing vomiting and diarrhea, this is the body's natural response to getting rid of the poison. Make sure that you drink plenty of fluids, water and juices and soups, but avoid milk products until you are well again.
It did not seem to itch or bother her but I took her to the doctor and they said it was just a side effect from the medication and should disapear in 4-5 days. Well it has now been a week and the spots are still there. And she woke up 2 nights ago because she had thrown up but went right back to sleep and hasn't had any problmes and felt great. But then she threw up this morning.
Hi, The rash appeared prior to intake of amoxicillin? Is this correct? And the hives developed after amoxicillin use? Have you stopped giving her amoxicillin?
I may also add, that I have 0 problems in my groins/penis, 0 problems in my armpits, and 0 rashes. And My Left lymphnode is also fine/normal. Shortly after, the swelling of my right lymphnode, I had a fever, chills, night-sweats,dry cough which lasted 4 days. 500mg of Amoxicillin was used to treat this flue. And now I feel fine. I am currently waiting for my 6th week to get Blood-Work done out of pre-caution for any S.T.D.
We took him to the doctor and was told that he was allergic to amoxicillin. We immediately started him on Benadryl every 6hrs and it seemed to have work but as the benadryl wears off his rashes starts to come back. We have been giving him benadryl round the clock x 2 1/2 days now. My question is -- why did it take so long for him to get a reaction from amoxicillin? I thought you typically see a reaction immediately after you take a medication.
I took her to the doctor again today (1 week later) and they told me that she has erytherma multiforme caused from the amoxicillin. Can anyone tell me if the amoxicillin was the cause to this and how long it will last? Do you think it could be something else?
9 and i couldn't breathe and i was freezing and coughing and my throat was swollen and...... anyways, they prescribed me amoxicillin. That was the day before yesterday. Last night i started getting this red,... speckled bloody looking rash on my thighs. It had moved up my hips, stomach, chest, and now my neck by this morning. Am i allergic? I can breathe just fine now. The swelling in my throat is going down. My fever broke. I'm only a litle itchy and kinda sore. Does that mean i'm allergic?
Since last night's dosage and today's dosage, she has been breaking out in rash and the rash hasn't gone away. It doesn't itch, and she doesn't have a fever anymore. It looks like hives, could that be an allergy to the medicine? I know myself and my grandmother are allergic to penicillin not sure if that has any relation to amoxicillin ? (although my mother isn't allergic to any type of medicine, seems to skip a generation) .
Word of advice from someone who has been there, keep a watch out for mold and rashes like the amoxicillin reaction rash. Our pediatrician seemed to agree with me, so that er doctor was just being a jackalope! 2 + 2 really does = 4! I really hope all of your kids get better.
Tuesday - i woke up with my neck, shoulders and back area with very very itchy and pink rashes. they are flat and not like hives but just like a sunburn. but it also spread in my face w/c is very frustrating to be itchy. also, the rashes in my face had become small pimples w/ small pustules. WED THURS FRI - the rashes have been fading but still itching like crazy. more like the rashes are becoming colorless and very dry like the skin is about to renew.
I found skin irritation and rashes on my palm and feet so I went to see the doctor and he said these could be caused by Curam antibiotics, so I stop taking these 3 medicine...but the rashes are still there. Now I start to get very worried these are related to syphilis or even hiv because of fever then rashes. The light sore throat does not go away. It comes and goes during the day, and is more noticeable right after waking up. Those like “Athlete's foot” infections, reddish, probably 1.
An allergic reaction to amoxicillin (and then all penicillin based meds would be included) is sudden and intense and can quickly become life threatening. Rash is listed as a side effect to this antibiotic. Call the doctor but it is highly unlikely that it is an allergic reaction but a side effect. And it doesn't mean your child will get it every time they take amoxicillin or drugs of the penicillin class. good luck!!
"I'm the one who had hepatitis c but did nothing to get it" Well technically that's not possible at all but we know what you mean I think? You have to take the other meds that are needed to sustain your life. If a doctor is aware that you have hepC and prescribes a medication chances are it's ok to take. But it's better to be safe about it. For example - some doctors don't realize that they should not prescribe prednisone while people are on treatment but they do.
Using the same material there for treatment helps, but the rash returns. I have used a few times this year some antibiotics for an infection (amoxicillin and also Cipro). The last one some weeks ago. During the last two years there appears so now and then a rash (without itching) on my chest and also higher on my back. It are red spots of a few mm. It looks a bit like 'marbled skin'. Not on arms or legs, but really located on chest and back.
Take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin and apply some calamine lotion on the rashes. If the symptoms persist then topical or oral steroids may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.

Certain antibiotics (amoxicillin and some others Im not quite sure of) given to a patient with mono can cause a rash and fever. Definitely you should see someone ASAP, but this is what happened to me just two weeks ago. Best of luck, I hope you are feeling better soon.

Hi, Augmentin is an oral antibacterial combination consisting of the antibiotic amoxicillin and the β-lactamase inhibitor clavulanate potassium. Side effects may occur such as hypersensitivity reactions. This may include skin rashes, pruritus, urticaria, serum sickness-like reactions (skin rash accompanied by arthritis, arthralgia, myalgia, and frequently fever), hypersensitivity vasculitis, and an occasional case of exfoliative dermatitis.

*I later returned to the doctor because my flu-like symptoms persisted for more than a week and a half, and was prescribed Amoxicillin. Flu-symptoms disappeared completely about 3 days later after starting the antibiotic. 12/28/09 - red rash on testicles disappeared - hydrocortisone treatment seemed to help, alleviating burning sensation for the most part, and all redness left. 12/30/09 - Noticed strange prickling sensations on scrotum, only when walking around.
They put her on cortisone creams, a new antibiotic and ear drops and she got better but she still has little rashes in the same spots that come and go daily. I am still on the vicodin and the neurontin, which the doctor told me was alright, while I am waiting for the nuerontin to work.
My hair fell out in handfuls and it was awful. Long story short - amoxicillin and/or augmentin both worked wonders when the tetracyclines didn't do anything but harm. My hair shedding lessened within a week and is actually starting to grow back and in 10 days my skin was almost completely clear. Doctors NEVER want to admit when they may have made a mistake or when a different drug might help more, but it was a miracle for me. I hope my misery can help somebody.
I had those horrendous rashes too. I had them all over, they would break out every few weeks and last a few weeks. They were itchy. I would break out in round patches 6 inches across. I still get rashes all the time but not as bad the ones I had the first year.
