Get a delayed rash over a weeks time
If I am allergic to erthyromycin would I be allergic to cleocin?
Added 7 Nov 2010:
I have been taking cleocin for a week for a tongue biopsy and noticed a prickley red rash on face, scalp, and upper back. After taking EES in the past I also had a delayed reaction similar to this drug.
Erythromycin belongs to a group of medications known as macrolides. It works by inhibiting a part of bacterial ribosomes, which are parts of cells that make proteins. By inhibiting the ribosomes, the medication interferes with the ability of bacteria to make proteins, which is necessary for the bacteria to grow and multiply.
This medication belongs to a group of antibiotics known as lincosamides. It works by inhibiting a specific area of bacterial ribosomes, which are parts of cells that make proteins.

It could be a side effect of the med, however please do seek medical advice take care, be well.
