Clindamycin rash

Common Questions and Answers about Clindamycin rash

benzaclin

Though I only took one capusle of the Clindamycin, it caused me a severe rash, cramping, nausea, diarrhea,etc. I knew not to take it further as I wrote on my form 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.
Is an excruciating headache a sign of a reaction to clindamycin? I can't take it anymore, and my CT scan came back clean. I'm on the antibiotic as a preventative measure after sinus surgery (I'm about a week out). There's no infection, and all the drainage, etc. is normal.
but if it's a matter of another rash that can be treated with Benadryl (the rash I developed at the time was a very fine maculopapular rash that wasn't even itchy).
At least that's what the doctors tell me caused my itching and rash. I have a red rash 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 before. Should I request this one instead of the Clindamycin? Do you think the Clindamycin could have caused this reaction?
I went to the dermatologist today for the sores on my face and was prescribed clindamycin. He said this rash/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 afternoon and could feel my face getting hotter and hotter and assumed it was my fever.
Hello and hope you are doing well. Clindamycin which is clindamycin hydrochloride is unlikely to have cross reactions with penicillin or sulfa group of medications. Sometimes the inactive ingredients in the medications can cause an allergic reaction. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
When he went for his usual annual physical, internal medicine doctor subscribed doxycycline with clindamycin. After 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. Thanks This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/243452'>Itchy rash only on face</a>.
I had some teeth extracted and had a bit of discomfort a few days after. I am allergic to Penicillin, so my oral surgeon prescribed Clindamycin 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 this date, i have lose stools, not quite diarreha but they are soft and accompanied by mucous like substance. Stress has always been a big part of my life, but never a problem so i am ruling that out.
I have a bad rash 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!
I have also recently have developed a rash on my chest and face (same colour as the groin rash and feels hot). Other observations: I have red veins on the groin and one vein on each side of my inner thigh The groin rash seems to subside during the evenings (the red fades but the red veins remain) With the latest creams, it felt like it was getting a little better before the chest and face rash. I hope that someone has seen this and can help me as I feel kind of desperate for a cure.

Externally applied antibiotics such as erythromycin, clindamycin can 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.
I also gently cleanse my face daily. However recently, as in the last several months, I have had a recurring pimple-like rash 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 can be slightly itchy/painful and the salicylic acne cream I have tried did not reduce it.
hi, am 21 years old, with no history of any kind of skin rash 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 after threading directly. It did not work. I stopped threading long time ago now, but the pimples keep on coming.
The next day I had a rash on both forearms 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 for more than 48 hours and the rash is no better, in fact at times feels worse. It is photosensitive and very itchy. I had prednisolone for 3 days and am using cortisone ointment. How long before it should subside??
After several treatments (Bactrim, Doxcycline, and finally Clindamycin 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.
Started taking 300 mg Clindamycin 3x daily for a full 3days, now experiencing a hive rash 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 & should I be concerned?
you just look irritated down there and tells me to use diaper rash 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 days since this started and it just seems to be getting worse by the minute. I just don't understand what is wrong with me.
I have a rash 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 for almost two years!! Do you know what to do?
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 rash 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.
The bactrim helped the most and seemed to clear the rash up, but now my system is used to it and the rash is back and doesn't respond to the bactrim. Any ideas to what this rash is? Fungal perhaps?
I also began tetracycline (but I've only taken 2 doses) and have used Clindamycin Phosphate twice as well. A few days 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 before. It doesn't really look like acne, more just like slightly raised red blurry spots.
Pt is a 23 yo Caucasian male presenting with a rash 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.
But as I scratched it spread to my left leg and looked like impetigo. So my doctor gave me clindamycin. The infection went away but the rash was still there. Another doctor said it looked like mites and prescribed me premethrin, but I broke out in hives after using it. The rash then spread to my forearms. 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.
Could it be related to the original 'poison ivy' rash? The dermatologist's advice was to clear up the Staph first because he believed the rash would go away after. Does this sound correct given the circumstances? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, after using the cream for one week now, the Staph infection has cleared up a little, but not a great amount.

Hello, I am 24 year old male, and I get this rash above the bridge of my nose on my forehead, my nose and on the right cheek that is red and slightly raised and extremly itchy and it burns (but not scaly) and it refuses to go away. 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 for 2-4 days at a time.
Mupirocin ointment 5 days mo. x12 mo.; Clindamycin Phosphate daily to affected areas; Hibiclins antiseptic/antimicrobial wash daily on body folds. She told me that it would take an entire year for 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'.
my 7yro daughter started having an itchy scalp w/ a rash behind her ears & on the back of her neck. This has been going on for 3 days; we recently changed shampoos and we believe that this may be the problem. I have been bathing her in baking soda baths & baby shampoo w/ multiple rinsing, 12.5mg of Benadryl PRN and Hydrocortizone Creme @ hs & in the a.m. The rash has lessened, but, still itching & the rash is milder, but, still there.
