Brief Answer: You need to go to the ER urgently. Detailed Answer: Hello Ms XXXXXXX Thanks for your query. You seem to have developed an allergic reaction to Cefuroxime, you need to go to the ER urgently. Call 911 now. If you have any antihistamines like Benadryl or cetrizine, you may take one tablet right away. Please do not hesitate as the allergic reaction can become very serious. Hope this answers you query, please write back once you are back from the hospital. Wishing you all the best. Warm regards.
