Clindamycin and penicillin allergy

Common Questions and Answers about Clindamycin and penicillin allergy


Avatar n tn I was healthy before I took the Clindamycin and now I wake up nauseous and yesterday had a huge welt on my right arm and 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 n tn There are alternative antibiotics to penicillin and clindamycin.
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-allergy type medicine, oxygen supplementation, and 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 penicillin and clindamycin 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 Penicillin and double checked with the Dr. and 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 Clindamycin - 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 n tn I went to a walk- in clinich, yesterday and talked to doctor. He put me on Clindamycin because I have an allergy 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 f tn So if you are allergic to amoxacillin you are probably/possibly allergic to all the penicillin and penicillin 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 allergy? Wishing you a speedy recovery and 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, and 6days later, those are both going on, along with still being itchy. I tried taking clindamycin, 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 and he prescribed me penicillin 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 m tn Ear tubes and removal of tonsils and adenoids when I was young. Allergic to pollen and animals. Tested and started shots Mar 2008. Sinus CT scans (when healthy) show a slightly deviated septum, no air-fluid levels, some mucus and passage swelling, and a cyst/polyp in my left maxillary sinus.

Avatar n tn I personnally prefer clindamycin as alternative to penicillin allergy 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
1070570 tn?1283439813 They are intrinsically resistant to penicillinase-susceptible penicillin (low level), penicillinase-resistant penicillins, cephalosporins, nalidixic acid, aztreonam, macrolides, and low levels of clindamycin and 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 penicillin, mine were foirming because I have a allergy 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 and my body rejected penicillin (rash and 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, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and 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 Came down with a big sore bump inside my left nostril. Entire left side of nose became red and swollen. Went to Prime Care and test showed "light staph infection". Have been taking double-strength Bactrim along with Valtrex in case it could be the start of shingles. It has been 4 days on meds with no improvement, but no rash either. Extremely painful. Wake up every 2 hours and need Vicodin. Seems to radiate into cheek. Scalp itches now.
Avatar n tn I too have washed the sheets religiously, avoided harsh makeup and chemicals, tried to link this to some type of food allergy--and 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 (Clindamycin) and I am using it for 5 days now and 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, and also Penicillin, they used Nova caine and 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.

Avatar n tn Anyone on hormone replacement pills when this started? Or it could be an allergy to detergent? Comes and 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.
