If an allergic reaction occurs, call the doctor or 911. Children 2 years of age and up should be given Claritin (loratadine). Children 6 and up can take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to minimize the reaction.
I broke out in a rash again, got itchy on my hands a bit and feet again. Is it that the penicillin is still in my body and is there something in the wine now triggering my rash that isn't agreeing with the penicillin? Perhaps sulfites? Can another allergy develop as an outcome of my allergic reaction to the Cefdinir?
my 2 and a half year old son is allergic to penicillin. his pediatrician prescribed Omnicef for severe ear infections. She said there was a 5% chance hed be allergic to that but she wanted to try it out. well, he was allergic. After 3 doses he broke out in HIVES all over his face and scalp scratching and screaming in a way no child ought to scream.
I took the full ten day dose and still had the headache so I called her and she changed the antibiotic to penicillin. I took that for a few days and still had the headache (now going on for two weeks) so I went into an ENT doctor. He diagnosed me with a yukky sinus infection and put me on a different antibiotic of which within three days I knew I was having an allergic reaction to it! I called him and he changed me to another one (the fourth one!). He also placed me on prednisone.
In which case i will stop takin the OMNICEF (like they said) and continue with the penicillin and so forth.....IN CONCLUSION this rash was at first just one and then another on the other side of my face as well........then they spread and kinda of look like hives.... now i just have red circular rashes SLIGHTY raised above the skin all over my face.....ive used almost EVERYTHING to get rid of it after i read about side effects or reactions... PLEASE HELP! concerned (soon to be military baby!
I was wondering if you found out anything about your daughters hives and joint pain. My daughter is 8, she was on omnicef for strep throat back in January and developed hives and had severe joint pain for over a week. Yesterday, she started on azithromycin for another round of strep throat and started breaking out in hives again this morning. Her joints are now swelling. We'd love to get to the bottom of whatever's causing this.
He was put on amoxil and had an allergic reaction so he has been taking omnicef. The Dr told us this week that the omnicef has not done anything and that he was going to give him a round of antibiotic shots. So far my son has had 2 of the 3 shots. My first question is how quickly do these shots work? My other question is: Is there some underlying problem that is causing these ear infections, something more serious? He has not had any other type of infection i.e.

For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
i've been on BOTH of those from the dentist before for about 4/5 years so i have a feeling it cant possibly be that, i even told them that i was on OMNICEF before they prescribed penicillin and ibuprofen so it wouldnt be a problem.... THe called the doctor and told her and she said it was because i am mixing antibiotics and my body shouldnt have that many in my system, etc. In which case i will stop takin the OMNICEF (like they said) and continue with the penicillin and so forth.....
I know they gave him a low dose at the urgent care clinic--but I wonder if it was too low of a dose and has basically been ineffective for him. He's had penicillin for strep before and it's always been effective within hours, and it's like he never had strep after getting the shot. Not this time. I don't know what the deal is. So there was my weekend. Brandon and I are exhausted and broke from medical bills. Hopefully the kids will be on the mend by midday today.
She had an allergic reactin to Omnicef and this med is supposedly in the same family. Anyway, she has only had an extremely mild rash this time so we have continued giving the med to her. But she screams terribly each time we give it to her--kind of like it is hurting her. She has taken numerous meds since she was born and hasn't reacted like this to any of them. Then this morning she threw up everything in her tummy about 30min-1hour after giving the medicine to her.
he is also allergic to peanuts,strawberries,milk,soy,penicillin,diflucan,omnicef, and certain molds. i am extremely worried that he might die one day or something..hes a very picky eater but still eats alot when i give him what he loves the most which is hot dogs and any veggies..hes a very good boy and i just want to know what this might be starting to look like in a disease sorts or if he has some other hidden reason why this is all happening to such a sweet child.
I am upset that I have something now that I have given him through oral sex, my question is, what is it if I have been tested and come out negative from gonorrhea and chlamydia, keeping in mind that the guy I cheated with received an intramuscular shot and Omnicef for an "infected hair follicle" from trimming? Could everything I experienced be just side effects from metronidazole, even though the worst of it happened the night I stopped dosage in the morning?

I'm currently prescribed Bactrim for urethritis (have had it before) and Omnicef for this sickness (Doctor determined I had an ear infection), but was also prescribed Cipro & Minocycline weeks ago to get rid of any possible bacterial STD's. (In case you thought that might have been a reason for this.) Yesterday afternoon, I began to feel a sore spot on my upper lip, on the left outside part of it.
I am 17 weeks pregnant and after 5 days in hospital on iv penicillin 4 x daily and oxygen, I am now home on oral penicillin 4 x daily for another 6 days. I also had an xray using the lead apron to protect baby. I believe there is still a risk the baby gets a small amount of radiation although the doctors were not concerned about the 'small' risk to baby.
A week later, both ears got infected again and dr. prescribed omnicef. Daughter started to vomit and ran fevers of 105 and almost dehydrated. Went to ER and got a shot of rocephin antibiotic, since she could not hold down the antibiotics well. 2 days later she started running fevers again, and Dr. gave her another shot of rocephin, which he said should definately clear up the infection. 5 day follow up- infection still there with pus comming out of her ear now. Dr.
A virus hijacks your own body's healthy cells and uses it to reproduce and spread. A bacteria is its own living cell and multiplies and spreads on its own and is easier to destroy in that process. Speaking of outbreaks, influenza is finally reaching Palo Alto right around now.
I admit that none were an exotic variety; Amoxicillin, Penicillin, Azithromax, and a number of mycin's, and years ago, several months of tetracycline. Keep in mind that these reactions are extremely rare, and cautionary notes are often included as a CYA for the drug company.

We took her to the emergency room, and I told the doctor about the amoxicillin allergy, and that my theory was that, since amoxicillin and penicillin are created by mold naturally, there was a connection. I have never wanted to slap someone so much - this doctor told me that was ridiculous - that all amoxicillin and penicillin products are created synthetically. He said I just must have missed something and she got into something.
It is 4 a.m. and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
He said about 1% of people allergic to it will react to Ceftin. He himself is allergic to penicillin and did just fine on Ceftin. We talked about it for a good 5 minutes and he seems confident I won't have a problem. He said he has put people on amoxicillin that were allergic to it as a child and never had a problem with it because they outgrew the allergy.
Our Pediatrician is now doing more thorough overnight screens and my son's strep finally cleared up on Omnicef. Might be worthwhile to determine if any other strains are present for your family as well. Good luck!
If you are not familiar with what syphilis could do a person before penicillin was discovered, do a little wandering on the 'net and see. Syphilis and Lyme are caused by bacteria in the same family, and both need serious and complete treatment. I took the meds, it was no big deal ... and I don't take meds for no reason, for the rationale stated above: antibiotics are for serious diseases, but they must be taken as prescribed, or we are all sunk in the big picture.
The 2nd month I was moved to Zithromax, Rifampin and omnicef.....I almost immediately (within an hour or two) swelled up at my joint sites, developed an immediate INTENSE intolerance to alcohol....even a sip or two, Anxiety SOOO bad I was taking hand-fulls of xanax at a time and I didn't sleep for a moment for the 1st 3 or 4 days!! I in such pain, my face swelled, felt feverish, no appetite, just could only lay still in bed and moan and cry.

From the 25th to Feb 5th, she couldn't bear to go in. The dr put her on 2 different antibiotics, omnicef first then amox-clav 875mg, and once the congestion started, ordered 40mg prednisone for 5 days. He said it didn't need to be tapered since she was only on it for 5 days. She was also prescribed a cough medicine with codeine so she could sleep at night. When she finished the prednisone, she started wheezing.
