Hi,
If you are allergic to penicillin you can take antibiotics like Erythromycin, Azithromycin, Clindamycin. You should have consulted a physician at the time of the problem. Usually an allergic reaction is treated by the administration of adrenalin, hydrocortisone and chlorphenaramine maleate. The problem you are suffering from does not seem to be a continuation of the anaphylactic reacion. Please consult a physician and get your self checked.
