I was prescribed Clindamycin after a root canal. I took 5 pills & suddenly developed severe diahrea. I immediately stopped taking it & the diarhrea stopped. The next day I developed a very red itchy rash all over my body - mostly where my clothes touch in the warm areas. What can I do to stop the itching & how long will this last?

Diarrhea is a common side effect of clindamycin, but rash and itching are serious side effects. Please see your doctor as soon as possible.
