Amoxicillin rash treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin rash treatment


Avatar n tn My 8 yr old daughter just had a reaction to Amoxicillin after 8 days of use for the treatment of Strep. I took her to our family physician and he gave her a steroid shot. The rash dissapeared within 4 hours of the shot. He also suggested, which we have followed, administer over the counter Claritin for children during the day; and Benydryl for children at night time.
702036 tn?1259542716 I was prescribed amoxicillin due to infection. I saw a post about it but it was way back in 2003. Would the antibiotic affect my tx outcome? I cannot talk to my hepatologist until Monday about that. Shall I wait or start it?
Avatar n tn This article mainly focuses on causes, symptoms and Amoxicillin rash treatment. Amoxicillin Rash Treatment Amoxicillin is an antibiotic prescribed to deal with infectious bacteria. This drug is popular among medical practitioners, as it is easily absorbed by the body, especially if administered orally. Amoxicillin belongs to class of penicillin antibiotics. It is usually used to treat ear infections, throat infections, bladder infections and also some sexually transmitted diseases.
Avatar f tn My 7 year old daughter has been having a rash/hives appear with a burning sensation to accompany it. She was originally diagnosed with Strep and was given 2 rounds of amoxicillin. The day after she finished the antibiotic this starting happening. The Dr thought it may be an allergic reaction or side effect form the antibiotics so they put her on prednisone and singulair. She seemed to have cleared up while on the steroid but as soon as she finished it the rash came back.
Avatar m tn We took him to the doctor and he prescribed amoxicillin 2x/day for 10 days. Yesterday my friend's son had the same rash and his doctor prescribed him amoxicillin 3x/day and said it had to be AT LEAST 14 days for lyme treatment. I looked online and that is what I found also. I am concerned my son was not on antibiotics long enough and that symptoms will show up later when it is harder to treat.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with a duodenal ulcer and have finished my course of antibiotics, however I'm still on Prevacid. I developed a rash on my forehead about two days into treatment, and it's still there. I thought at first it was the Amoxicillin, but I finished that about a week ago, and the rash is still there. Could the rash be from Prevacid?
Avatar n tn the best thing to do is to be seen and get this looked at so you can get better answers and treatment so it's gone. who needs a rash on their thighs in this heat wave????
Avatar m tn It could be Perianal Streptococcal, it is uncommon in adults but it does happen, by way of germs entering the anus which trigger strep. I have it and I'm 59. Amoxicillin is the treatment as you were prescribed perhaps you need to continue the doses, I would check with a doctor first.
Avatar n tn He prescribed me an antibiotic(Amoxicillin).The rash was not itchy but was infectious. After taking the oral medication for 5 days thrice a day(500mg) symptoms faded away after about a week.But now the same symptoms are showing again. I want to know the cause for recurrence and how to cure the rash.Can the clothes i wear have an effect on the recurrence of the rash?

Avatar m tn Hi, I have had a red rash between my thighs and scrotum that has lasted around 8 weeks now. It is located in the crease of the groin, between my high thigh and scrotum on both sides. It began shortly after I began taking amoxicillin for a sinus infection. It began as a (somewhat warm) prinkling sensation between my groin and scrotum. My doctor said it was heat rash probably triggered by the antibotics and prescribed clotrimazole and betamethasone cream.
Avatar m tn He prescribed me an antibiotic ointment and amoxicillin oral for 7 days. The cream and pills did not seem to have much effect. I didn't see any progress until about the 11 day from treatment . The odd thing is that although the inflammation and itch is gone, and the majority of the redness is gone, still feel as thought the skin has not fully healed. At close inspection, it still appears slightly red in the area.
5042338 tn?1362737216 While drugs in the class amoxicillin is in can cause severe allergic reactions, more mild allergy symptoms, such as a rash, can occur at any time during treatment, even up to a week after treatment has ceased. For some people who are allergic to amoxicillin the side-effects can be deadly. If you take this drug again, the reaction could be worse, so you need this drug listed as an allergy for you forever.
Avatar m tn Yeah, I totally understand how tempting it is to associated a cause and effect relationship with the Amoxicillin and the rash/itch. Certainly this, like all medications (and most foods), seem to cause some allergic or allergic-type reactions in a small percentage of people. But once the drug has been eliminated by the body, the source of the reaction is gone and so goes the reaction. Could you have something going on that is so rare that we don't entirely understand it?
Avatar f tn Hi, welcome to the forum, first thing needs to be ruled out is angioedema (retention of fluid in the lips) which is due to hypersensitivity reaction (type 1) or eczema. Drugs like amoxicillin and certain food (seafood, peanuts etc.) can cause such reaction. There will be associated laryngeal edema which may lead to breathing problems. In such cases triggering factor should be identified and you should avoid the triggering factor.
Avatar f tn I was put on an antibiotic and then developed an itchy rash on my joints, not the traditional lyme rash. The rash is odd because it is fairly localized and comes and goes sporadically. As a nurse myself, I knew it was not an allergic reaction to the antibiotic but agreed to be switched to another antibiotic. Needless to say that did little to help with the rash.
Avatar n tn My 6 month old baby girl has had a rash on the back of her butt and it hasn't gone away for over 2 months. Her Doctor prescribed her hydrocortizone cream and that didn't help. So she prescribed amoxicillin which didn't clear it either. It seems to be worse after every time she has a bowel movement. Please help, I'm worried it could be something more serious and it's getting over looked.
Avatar m tn I had sex with a condom I immediately felt a burning sensation. I have a rash and red spots on the tip of my penis. I went to the doctor all tests came back negative. no STDS no herpies! she just gave me something for the itching and told me it might be awhile. Its been over 3 months and the symptoms have not gone away. I have tried every home remedy possible. Lamisil, Peroxide, amoxicillion, coconut oil tea tree oil. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO!!
Avatar n tn Swelling seems to be spreading and the metronidazole doesn't seem to be helping. I am continuing treatment in hopes I am wrong. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/242382'>Intensely itchy, red rash on scrotum / groin and itchy legs</a>.
Avatar m tn E if the rash returned. The rash did return the following evening and once again she had a glass of rose wine and started with a rash We have tried to account for all possible triggers and can only suggest (1) spice(s) used on her food or (2) alcohol , however this does not explain why she started with a rash on her hands Friday afternoon (as she had no alcohol intake) Is there blood or any other means of test, she can take to identify allergies?
Avatar n tn OK, I'll try. Your baby's rash is not an allergy to amoxicillin because, as you point out, the rash preceded it. She is also not allergic to neurontin, because the rash would not have gotten much better while you are still taking it. (Allergies to drugs in breast milk can in theory occur, but they must be awfully uncommon; I've never seen one.) By a process of elimination, then, your baby's rash appears to be something other than a drug eruption. What could it be?
301354 tn?1211814120 Well, we are on to a second round of nystastin cause the little one got sick and had to have amoxicillin toward the end of the first treatment. I of course got a yeast infection too and am allergic to most of the creams so doc said I could take diflucan. If the nystatin doesn't work on him this time and the diflucan and other stuff I am doing doesn't work then the pediatrician is going to try something else, but I don't know what it was.
Avatar f tn There has been improvement, but at night seems to return, which is upsetting. Friday was bad, last night less so. How long can I expect this to go on, when can I expect rash to dissipate entirely? Is this "normal" course for this type of allergic reaction? Have read some frightening things about bactrim and rashes, told in ER i was "lucky". Am also told take 50 mg benadryl daily. PCP changed antibiotic to amoxicillin 875, which I admit am afraid to begin.
Avatar m tn He thought it was some kind of an UTI and prescribed me augmentin for treatment. After a week on this antibiotic I didn't feel much better, although the symptoms were changing - somewhat less burning, showing up in the morning after I wake up. He suggested I also visit urologist. The urologist examined my prostate and it was inflated. At that time a rash was visible on the head of the penis, slightly burning.
Avatar m tn In people sensitized to metals, mobilisation of the allergen might results in a skin rash. These effects are well-known to doctors using D-penicillamin for treatment of various diseases such as multiple sclerosis. If you, by any chance, suffer from allergy to nickel or other metals or if you have silver or gold fillings in your mouth, this might increase the probability of metal sensitization. The MELISA blood test can objectively diagnose allergy to the metals you are currently exposed to.
Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with Lyme (about three months ago) and was placed on doxy for 21 days. I havent seen a tick since I was a kid (about 20 yrs ago), and never had the classic rash associated with the lyme. However, I have had occasional circular spots on my skin since I was a kid and the doctor always treated them as ringworm. When I was a teenager, I broke out in millions of the spots all over my body and after seeing multiple doctors, they finally decieded it was psoriasis.

Avatar m tn Some doctors will not prescribe it if there's a history of allergic reaction to penicillin unless they do a test by injecting a small amount of amoxicillin -usually in the arm- and see if a rash develops. Do you know if you have an allergy to penicillin? Candida flare after amoxicillin treatment? Hmm, possible.
Avatar f tn my 4 1/2 yo daughter was put on amoxicillin for strep thraot, on day 9, she broke out in a rash..pediatrician said it was allergic reaction, stopped medication and rash slowly went away over the course of the next few days. My question is, ....exactly 1 week after amoxicillin was stopped, she started complaining of stomach pains and headache and has vomitted a couple of times. I don't think if a flu bug, (no fever, diarrhea, aches etc) think has been going on for over 1 week.
