Actually, none of them contain penicillin. Amoxicillin is in the same family, so you would be allergic to it.
-Amoxicillin and belongs to the drug class aminopenicillins (you can not take this one).
-Cephalexin to the drug class first generation cephalosporins.( Cephalosporins are a class of antibiotics closely related to penicillin).
+Ciprofloxacin belongs to the drug class quinolones.
+Doxycycline belongs to the drug classes miscellaneous antimalarials, tetracyclines.
