I have never been allergic to penicillin before. I have taken amoxicillin before without any reaction. This last time hives broke out in the middle of the two week period of taking them. It was the first time I have ever had hives. My question is, does the treatment still work on infections if an allergic reaction appears?
Endorolf; Yes BUT NEVER DO THAT AGAIN and have it marked you are allergic to penicillin many times each time you are exposed to it the side effect well or could get worse. You don't know how lucky you are the next side effect you may not even have time to dial 911, As we get older our systems can change be very careful and tell your doctor about this the next time you see him or her you are playing with dynamite my friend.
