Hi,

Levofloxacin can cause some itching but swelling face and headache may be kidney related as Levofloxacin may cause renal impairment. Go for urine routine analysis and serum creatinine and BUN.

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

Take care. All the best.

Regards,
Dr. Tushar Kanti Biswas, Internal Medicine Specialist
