Thank you for the query.

Medicine allergy is caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to the given medicine. Exact reason of such reaction stays unknown as immune system is extremely complicated and our knowledge about it seems to be very limited.
If the allergy has appeared with rash only, you can give Cetyryzine. If shortness of breath appears, mouth swelling, this is urgent and you should visit your doctor as soon as possible.
Definitely you should stop giving this antibiotic. Your doctor should be informed and other chemical group of antibiotic should be given (Trimethoprim with Sulphametoxazolum).

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
