Prescribed for a severe sore throat. I'm allergic to penicillin, so I'm assuming that's why I was given this.

I had an absest cut from my eyebrow, and prescribed this med. For 10 days. I came down with cold like symptoms a sore throat and on the 7th day broke out in hives and a rash. Then requested to be taken off the med and given benadril till symptoms disappear. This med doesn't work and I wouldn't suggest using.

I am not sure what is happening, i think its an allergic reaction. I have red spots all over my body and occasional itching. I have a doc appointment tomorrow so i will update later. Not sure this is such a great med, i would not have taken it if i would have known all these side effects.
