Hello misslynn, it seems you have read the side effects for this medication, but I am listing a link just in case you haven't. Not all side effects are always listed, so if you are too worried I would give your doctor a call today & let them know about this reaction you are having. A mild rash is a les serious side effect. If it is all over your body, then you may be having an allergic type reaction. Please contact your dotor today. There are other antibiotics that can treat this problem. Best wishes to you, & hope your infection clears soon...

Is this sore MRSA? Clindamycin is usually the drug of choice with it. The rash is a common side effect. Insomnia could be because you itch. There is nothing about a taste, however many meds do that, I don't know why this one can't, lol... Are you taking a probiotic or eating yogurt while on this med, because it can cause a type of diarrhea that may not show up until the end of the dosing.

All over rash is generally an allergic reaction. Spotty rash is acceptable. Having had a major reacts to a medication, while in a hospital, they filled me with Benadryl and kept an eppi pen right by the bed. Please see someone soon. One never knows when it will become worse.
Hope you heal well soon and that they are able to treat the infection effectively.
