Avatar n tn Though I only took one capusle of the Clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin, it caused me a severe r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh, cramping, nausea, diarrhea,etc. I knew not to take it further as I wrote on my an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran>m when I visited ER that I am allergic to Penicillin, Erthromycin, Tetracyclin, Sulfa, etc. and let the ER know. In fact I only went to ask a nurse if I needed to see a doctor but instead they put me through to the doctor.
Avatar n tn Is an excruciating headache a sign of a reaction to clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin? I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>'t take it anymore, and my CT san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> came back clean. I'm on the antibiotic as a preventative measure an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>afteran> sinus surgery (I'm about a week out). There's no infection, and all the drainage, etc. is normal.

Avatar n tn at least that's what the doctors tell me caused my itching and r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh. I have a red r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh on my hand and whenever I scratch, there is a breakout of whelps/bumps. also my lip has swollen. I also feel like I have indigestion. Is this the same as penacillin? I have used it and never had a reaction bean style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran>e. Should I request this one instead of the Clindamycin? Do you think the Clindamycin could have caused this reaction?
267347 tn?1189968425 I went to the dermatologist today an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran> the sores on my face and was prescribed clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin. He said this r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh/sores could be zits? He looked in his journal and said acne is a symptom of peg. I never heard of that but what do I know? anyway, I applied the cream and have to admit, it was soothing at first. I've been on the computer all an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>afteran>noon and could feel my face getting hotter and hotter and assumed it was my fever.
Avatar m tn Hi, I took Clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin 300 mg 3x a day. I only finished 12 out of 21 pills as I feared the high risk of colitis associated with this drug. My question is that an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>afteran> stopping the medication about 3 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>daysan> ago, I am having long (6"+), loose stools. Could this be c. diff? I also have a lot of gas throughout the day, some mild abdominal pain too.
Avatar m tn When he went an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran> his usual annual physical, internal medicine doctor subscribed doxycycline with clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin. an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>afteran> full course face was completely clear. Since then it keeps coming back though, he took one full course again recently. We are worried that it will come back again. also he tends to get pimples on face pretty often. any suggestions will be really helpful.

Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin which is clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin hydrochloride is unlikely to have cross reactions with penicillin or sulfa group of medications. Sometimes the inactive ingredients in the medications an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> cause an allergic reaction. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn My GI keep saying is not Clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin but I have never had anything like this until I took clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin. I felt like my GI is trying to protect the drug company.
Avatar m tn I have a bad r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh under my armpits and have been to two dermatologists, but none of the medications/creams they've prescribed has worked. One dermatologist told me it was dermatitus. It's sore and painful and the skin is also broken. Please help!

Avatar n tn Externally applied antibiotics such as erythromycin, clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> also be used. Contact dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin caused by direct contact with an irritating or allergy-causing substance (irritant or allergen). Some products cause a reaction only when they contact the skin and are exposed to sunlight (photosensitivity). These include shaving lotions, sunscreens, sulfa ointments, some perfumes etc.
Avatar n tn I also gently cleanse my face daily. However recently, as in the last several months, I have had a recurring pimple-like r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh at the edges of my face. It always appears right behind and a bit onto my cheeks and chin line, and it looks like small red bumps. Some are raised and some look like they are below the skin. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> be slightly itchy/painful and the salicylic acne cream I have tried did not reduce it.
Avatar m tn hi, am 21 years old, with no history of any kind of skin r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh or allergies. I did not even have any pimples that teenagers had. Since more than 2 months now, am having a rash on my face. It started when i started threading the hair on my face in a saloon. They told me that when the hair is growing back it is causing the pimple or reddness. They told me to use fucidin cream an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>afteran> threading directly. It did not work. I stopped threading long time ago now, but the pimples keep on coming.
Avatar f tn The next day I had a r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh on both an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran>earms where she had been resting. Over the next few hours it had spread to my hands. My GP and the Vet thought it was probably from me reacting to the Clinacin. Is this common?? She has now been off the Clinacin an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran> more than 4an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an> hours and the rash is no better, in fact at times feels worse. It is photosensitive and very itchy. I had prednisolone an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran> 3 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>daysan> and am using cortisone ointment. How long bean style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran>e it should subside??
Avatar m tn an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>afteran> several treatments (Bactrim, Doxcycline, and finally Clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin gel), it finally seemed to go away a few weeks ago. When I did a follow-up with my PCP, he said it simply looked like my skin was irritated at this point and that I had nothing to really worry about. In the week following, I noticed that the folds next to my scrotum were getting increasingly red and sweaty. Since I had an appointment with my dermatologist scheduled anyway, I had her look at it.
Avatar f tn Started taking 300 mg Clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin 3x daily an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran> a full 3an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>daysan>, now experiencing a hive r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh on my stomach, ears, and bottom lips, as well as the feeling of something stuck in my throat with only redness. I have a family history (4 generations) of being anaphylactic to Penicillin and Sulfa based drugs, as well as sea food. My son is highly allergic to penicillin and amoxicillin from past experiences. are these two medications being linked &amp; should I be concerned?
Avatar m tn you just look irritated down there and tells me to use diaper r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh cream maybe it will help. at first sign anything was wrong I stopped shaving down there, stopped using soap, and also washed all my underwear in Dreft. So I know I'm not making it worse myself. It has now been 20 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>daysan> since this started and it just seems to be getting worse by the minute. I just don't understand what is wrong with me.
Avatar n tn I have a r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh that appears around my nose. I went to one dermatologist and he gave me clindamiacin but it doesn't help. It doesn't ich but it stays red all the time. I have had it an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran> almost two years!! Do you know what to do?
Avatar n tn I am 50 years old, diagnosed with parkinsons 5 yrs ago, take sinemet, comtan, mirapex, lodosyn, sinemet er, nortriptlyline, sleeping pill, multi vit, calcium, over the past few months, I have developed these random skin r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh and infections. they start out as litttle red dots with white centers and then grow into about quarter size painful areas. Right now I am on clindamycin and docyclicline because the doctor wasn't sure if it was MRSa or another random rash.
Avatar m tn The bactrim helped the most and seemed to clear the r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh up, but now my system is used to it and the r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh is back and doesn't respond to the bactrim. any ideas to what this rash is? Fungal perhaps?
Avatar m tn I also began tetracycline (but I've only an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>takenan> 2 doses) and have used Clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin Phosphate twice as well. a few an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>daysan> prior to all this, I began to get a red, lumpy, spotty rash on both cheeks. It was gotten progressively worse. It is a little itchy but mostly just tight feeling. I have no idea what it is, and I've never had something like this bean style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran>e. It doesn't really look like acne, more just like slightly raised red blurry spots.
Avatar m tn Pt is a 23 yo Caucasian male presenting with a r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh over the entirety of his back with blotchy concentration on the lateral area over the latissimus dorsi and solid concentration over the shoulder area. The rash is red in nature, does not itch, is not raised. The severity comes and goes without known cause, but remains constantly. Presentation began 2 months ago and has increased in severity since. Pt has no known food or drug allergies.
Avatar n tn But as I scratched it spread to my left leg and looked like impetigo. So my doctor gave me clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin. The infection went away but the r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh was still there. another doctor said it looked like mites and prescribed me premethrin, but I broke out in hives an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>afteran> using it. The rash then spread to my an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran>earms. I have had 4 rounds of antibiotics and going on my 3rd round of prednisone and the creams they keep giving me are not working.
Avatar n tn Could it be related to the original 'poison ivy' r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh? The dermatologist's advice was to clear up the Staph first because he believed the r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh would go away an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>afteran>. Does this sound correct given the circumstances? any advice would be greatly appreciated. also, an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>afteran> using the cream an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran> one week now, the Staph infection has cleared up a little, but not a great amount.

I deveolped a rash similar about 5 mo ago and I found a steroid cream in the medicine cabinet (Clobetasol Propionate) which I tried a very small amount on the affected area and it cleared up withing a few hours, and it stayed away an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran> 2-4 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>daysan> at a time.
Avatar n tn Mupirocin ointment 5 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>daysan> mo. x12 mo.; Clind<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>mycin Phosphate daily to affected areas; Hibiclins antiseptic/antimicrobial wash daily on body folds. She told me that it would take an entire year an style = 'background-color: #daean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>8an>f4'>foran> my case to clear completely. So 3 months later, I return and show her that absolutely no progress had been made. She was baffled. She asked me if she could take some biopsy's and have them tested, so I did that. 1 week later, the results come back as 'Yeast'.
