I think your mother has a sign of an allergic reaction so you have to call your doctor immediately or to go to the emergency room. Your mother needs adrenaline antihistamine to use as soon as possible and not to use anymore Ceftriaxone.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
