... on all my face, band across neck, from behind left ear to right ear, back of hands & forearms. It seemed a combination of, flat red patches, papules and scaly areas. From onset to still few receding mild-symptoms has been over 9 weeks. My GP believes it is atypical of an allergic reaction to last this long, & referred to my reaction as a drug rash caused by the AMOXICILLIN. Can someone define, or direct me to online definition, of such a Drug rash, & the difference between this & an allergic reaction to penicillin. Note: my GP is registering my reaction as "allergic reaction to penicillin" in my medical file (in office) & BC Pharmacare website.
