I'm 26 years old. I have recently been prescribed 500mg amoxycilin tablets 3 times a day for an ear, nose and throat infection by a doctor. I'm worried about having an allergic reaction. I'm quite allergic to mold in general, would I have a reaction if I start taking the amoxycilin because it is technically made from mold?
