Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your query I will like to tell you that you should stop taking the antibiotics you are having allergy immediately . Ciprofloxacin or erythromycin can be used in case of penicillin allergy but ciprofloxacin will be safer as you are also saying allergy to clindamycin . Please check with your treating doctor before taking any medicine.

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
