Pregnant, diagnosed with lower urt, advised tankorex. History of allergy to pencillin. Is it safe?

Hello, today is 13th day since I got sick with lower respiratory tract infection as my JP doctor said on my appointment last monday. I had swolen tongs, could not swallow any food as it was so painfull and running nose. I am 20th week on pregnancy, my Jp doctor told me to take antibiotics called tankorex but I know that it is not safe for a baby and did not take it. I have alergy to antibiotic group called penecilin. Also it is already a week I have stuffy nose with green muscus mixed with blood. Feel weekness. Feels like it is not going away even I didtry to drink lots of camel tea, with ginger and honey, had hot salty bath for my feets. I do work as well and dont really know if it is better to stay home and take antibiotics I had prescribed before.. Could you advice me please ? Thank you!
