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.

Hello doctor, I need urgent advise. I have breathing and allergy problem since 5 years where I get itchy in my nose , throat, eyes , ears and continous sneezing . If not treated I also face swelling, head ache and vomit. I consulted specialist and advised to take Monteck LC and seroflo 100 rotacaps since 5 years everyday once. However now I have severe body itching and rashes from 15 days. I got a blood test done which reads - PCV - 33.1% ; MCV - 69.8 FL ; MCH - 21.3 PG and ESR - 42 MM/HR. I am told that my blood is infected and has allergy reaction which is causing this rashes and this may be due to drop in my immune system since I am taking seroflo 100 from years. I am unable to bear the rashes on my body and I cannot stop seroflo 100 since I have to take once in 24 hours. Please help.

My boyfriend is allergic to penicillin . He s had two abnormal skin infections, on they thought was MRSA and now another spot on his leg that started out as a burn. The burn started to heal, he put a triple antibiotic cream on it one night and band-aid while at work, when he came home it looked worse. The next night he accidently put hydrocortisone cream on it with a band-aid and it again got severly worse. A large red, inflammed area that looked raw and was oozing a clear-yellowish pus. He went to his family doctor and was told to go the ER again. They gave him bacitracin ointment to put on it and was told to wrap it up. While it is no longer oozing, the red inflammed area has grown and a red rash has started up his leg. If he is allergic to penicillin could he be allergic to the neomycin , polymyxin and pramoxine in the triple anitboitic, hydrocortisone or bacitrican?

Hello, I am currently using hydrocortisone for some dermatitis on my areola with the suggestion of my doctor. I am not breast feeding nor am I pregnant. When I stop applying the hydrocortisone, the dermatitis come back within a day so I read online that maybe elocon could work but where I m from (Malaysia) they only sell the alternative, which is elomat. Do you think it will be safe to use this alternative cream?
