Clindamycin and penicillin allergy

Common Questions and Answers about Clindamycin and penicillin allergy


Avatar n tn I was healthy before I took the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clindamycin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> now I wake up nauseous <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> yesterday had a huge welt on my right arm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> itchy bump on the front of my right ankle as well as off and on rashes that come and go. I would like to know when the clindamycin and maybe also the steroid cream effects will go away? I have to fight the swollen feet and ankles still and notice they get worse now when sitting for long periods of time. This was not an issue before.
Avatar m tn This interested me because I have been told I was allergic to penicillin since I was a young child. My Dad was a pediatrician so I assumed he had it right but now I'm considering getting tested.
Avatar f tn Even tho it could have happened from taking a double dose, you must let your doctor know immediately about this, as it's possible he'll want you to go to the ER to be administered an anti-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>allergy</span> type medicine, oxygen supplementation, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they'll keep you there until your symptoms subside. I notice you posted this seven hours ago, so if you are feeling normal now, and you take your next required dose and nothing happens, fine.
Avatar f tn Group B strep colonization is not a sexually transmitted disease (STD). For the same antibiotics like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>penicillin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clindamycin</span> are used. Because of possible resistance with clindamycin, vancomycin remains the initial treatment of choice for group B streptococcal infection in patients who are allergic to penicillin. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn I did, dosen't seem to do anything. I am allergic to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>penicillin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> double checked with the Dr. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the pharmacy before taking this drug. A friend of mine is a Family Practioner and told me to leave work and go home and take 2 benadryl every 8 hours. Will the benadryl clear up the rash? How long does it take to recover from something like this? Should I not hve been put on this drug with a severe penicillin allergy? Thank You for your time.
Avatar n tn I went to a walk- in clinich, yesterday <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> talked to doctor. He put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clindamycin</span> because I have an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>allergy</span> to penicillin and amoxycilline. Any way my swelling hasn't went down in fact it has increased and can feel it close to my eye's. Is there a way I could reduce the swelling or should I seek a medical emergency, right away?
Avatar n tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clindamycin</span> - Apparently now within a couple days she is noticing considerable improvements and now the spots have seemed to "stop" popping up no matter how mild they were when they did.... the fact is they've stopped showing up in new places. I've never seen someone so sensitive to EVERYTHING in the realm of physical and mental like my mom is, but one thing is for sure she definitely knows her body cause that sulfa drug did cause an allergic reaction.
Avatar f tn 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'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>penicillin</span> like drugs like what they call beta lactam drugs. These are cephalosporins or those that have names like cephalothin, cephalexin, ceph anything. Also if you are allergicc to Biaxin that is the same as Clarithromycin so you would be allergic to the macrolides like the clarthoromcyin, azithromycin, etc. It is too bad but you might want to get allergy tested to make sure. 2.
Avatar n tn out of curiosity, what were your symptoms of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>allergy</span>? Wishing you a speedy recovery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> improved lung function now that you have quite smoking!
Avatar n tn So I was going to switch, and after I stopped, I broke out with about 200 zits on my chest, a yeast infection, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 6days later, those are both going on, along with still being itchy. I tried taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clindamycin</span>, but every time (with liquids, food, hidden in soft foods, etc) the pill lodges in my throat, then burns it raw for days. This happens with everywhere pill. I also now have a metallic taste in my mouth.
Avatar f tn A couple days after it didnt feel right, I went to my dentist <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he prescribed me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>penicillin</span> VK 500mg PO QID. I finished the antibiotics and i still had this very strange hard lump on the left side of my bone next to the implant. I made another appointment and he stated I really dont know what that is, the bone graft looks good, theres no infection around the implant, however theres some strange darkening color in the bone on the xray that he couldnt rule out was infection or nerves.

Avatar n tn I personnally prefer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clindamycin</span> as alternative to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>penicillin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>allergy</span> patient. However, the regimen really depends on your private dentists. I am sure he/she can take good care of you. Root amputation is a minor oral surgical procedure, if you don't have compromised medical condition, post-op condition is generally uneventful.
Avatar n tn 1) Is their some outstanding question that is getting missed? 2) Abscess is concerning are there other options to address this? 3) Can a high grade fever be the staph infection or is it the scary abscess? 4) Is this treatment plans thus far valid or is there other options that can be used to treat this? 5) Opened to pushing to involved others to this team or even transfer facilities to do what's best.
1070570 tn?1283439813 They are intrinsically resistant to penicillinase-susceptible penicillin (low level), penicillinase-resistant penicillins, cephalosporins, nalidixic acid, aztreonam, macrolides, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> low levels of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clindamycin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> aminoglycosides. They use already-formed folic acid, which allows them to bypass the inhibition of folate synthesis, resulting in resistance to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.
Avatar m tn I ahd 5 apear on my face last year, when I went to see a dematologist we found out it was caused by a bacteria called stapphylococcus aureus and then when more appeared after a course of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>penicillin</span>, mine were foirming because I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>allergy</span> to penicillin. I know they have said not to touch the lumps, but I found washing them in hot water and gently easing the core out of the lump was the best way to get rid of it. I gave up going to the doctors to get antibiotices as it just didn't work...
Avatar n tn In 1996 I had double pneumonia with collapse of my lung. Steroids caused significant weight gain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my body rejected <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>penicillin</span> (rash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> itching). Months of Cipro finally got control of the disease, and I began to recover, but the coughing produced unrelenting muscle spasms that required physical therapy. That same year I had a pinched nerve in my T spine and passed 3 kidney stones. More wrenching and many hours of PT!
529981 tn?1212853666 Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> nothing seems to help. Please help me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my hair. I am a busy college student, who unfortunately does not have the time and money to deal with this.
Avatar n tn Thanks so much for all posts and so glad to find this site but so sorry about all of us with this dis-ease. This summer, after having unprotected sex, getting the "fishy ****" flora, being treated with antibiotics, yeast medicine, and now this StrepB and penicillin, more yeast meds and again this StrepB invades my privates. Thanks for all the advice I'll take the recommendations to my next Dr. visit and will combine the homeopathatics along with a month-long juice fast.

Avatar n tn I too have washed the sheets religiously, avoided harsh makeup <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> chemicals, tried to link this to some type of food <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>allergy</span>--<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I can't come up with anything! I will say that yesterday for the first time in a long time I began using the topical cream DUAC prescribed by my Dermatologist for acne.
Avatar n tn He did a test and it wasn't, so I went back and he did more tests and found out some bacteria that shoudn't be there, he passed me the medicin Dalacin (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clindamycin</span>) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am using it for 5 days now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my cuts did not open again since I began, so I really have my hopes up for this now, maybe it can be the case of some of you, ask for all the tests.
Avatar n tn I am another sufferer, goodness there are tons of us are'nt there plus we ones we havent heard from, I got Chronic Urticaria and Dermographism(thats another nasty little twist on Hives) after Dental work in May, I was given high doses for pain of Advil, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> also <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>penicillin</span>, they used Nova caine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I even am told the Materials in root canals can cause it, so I have at least a few allerganons there could have triggered it, the heat doesnt help ,but didnt start it.
288415 tn?1231634102 Ive got the itching <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the wet clear fluid, but mine ends up sticky with a nasty odour..<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my left ear has clogged shut..but i am in extreme pain now because i hav swelling around my left jaw..and yes it is really hard o stop the itching.. But unlike u i cant take tablets..
Avatar n tn Anyone on hormone replacement pills when this started? Or it could be an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>allergy</span> to detergent? Comes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> goes, I don't have yeast inf or hpv. No discharge. If I suffer the itchiness wo scratching, it goes away. If I scratch it's worse.
Avatar n tn It is hard to explain but it is a miserable feeling.. I was recently on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>penicillin</span> for a bladder infection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my mouth was so sore I could not eat. I am wondering if certain meds trigger this re-action. I am 71 years old and have had a few allergies and sinus problems, but otherwise in good health..I wish you all the very best and hope we can find something to stop this...
Avatar n tn My labia gets sore from the scratching <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I break skin often from scratching. I have tried everthing, but it doesn't go away. I know it's not an STD because I went to the doctor's and have been tested. However they haven't helped me none. The labia skin is thickened from the scratching, is very dry (white-like) and flaky (at times). So are my inner thighs at the crease yet they do not itch that often. There are no bumps but my skin is raised, and I don't know what it is.
