I had some teeth extracted and had a bit of dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>comfort a few days after. I am allergic to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>penicillin</span>, so my oral surgeon prescribed <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> 150mg 4 times daily, for 7 days.(November 5th ) Mouth pain went away and about the first week of December (one month later) and up to than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> date, i have lose stools, not quite diarreha but they are soft and accompanied by mucous like substance.

I've been struggling a chronic infection for the last 5 months as result of a failed root canal (the infected root wasn't completely removed in the original procedure, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd caused a MaJOR infection). Because it was not properly diagnosed, I now have a bit of bone infection under that tooth.

The similarity with penicillin an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> only important for people who are allergic to penicillin (as they will also be allergic to keflex).

So if you are allergic to amoxacillin you are probably/possibly allergic to all the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>penicillin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>penicillin</span> like drugs like what they call beta lactam drugs.
