    Amoxicillin for Tick bite

    After 8 days all of a sudden redness with strong itching appeared on the whole body. Especially on the soles of the feet, wrists, knee joints, neck, back. So far I’ve never had allergic reactions but that’s unacceptable.

    Amoxicillin for Skin rash; Fever

    On the second day after the intake, I had pustules all over my body, terrible itching and flushing sensation on my skin. That got worse a day later. The pustules dilate to red spots, itching, heat and tension feeling have become more. The worst is the upper body, on the thighs, arms, palms and face. It should be an amoxicillin rash (not allergy). Hopefully it will not take so long, it will be very stressful.

    Side effects: Itching; Skin rash; Itching rash

    Amoxicillin for Cystitis

    Amoxicillin got because of a bladder infection, as there was a suspicion of pregnancy and therefore safe because of this antibiotic could prescribe. Did it after a week and 2 days, then in the morning itching first on the ankle. In the evening my belly, my insides of the upper arms, my thighs and my arms and in general all parts of the body where the skin is thinner were dotted with terribly itchy red pustules. It was as unbearable as it was on the palms of his hands. Did not sleep for a second, my whole body even the scalp have itched like hell, could not stand it without scratching. Even going to the doctor was a torture then have cetirizine tablets (which, by the way, are not prescription, ie with appropriate symptoms can first help, but should absolutely still go to the doctor to rule out an allergic shock), which worked immediately after 30 min to have.

    Amoxicillin for Otitis

    Otolaryngology in our 5-year-old daughter after eardrum ear abroad after massive diving! After switching from another antibiotic, a nuchike rash with itching all over the body appeared. Diagnosis: penicillin allergy! So no more penicillin of any kind – could solve an anaphylactic shock or similar.

    Amoxicillin for Tonsillitis

    Received amoxicillin in the course of angina in the throat / throat. On the second day of treatment I noticed redness on the right back of the hand and on the right elbow with a slight itching. Since these did not worsen but rather tended to disappear again, I continued the treatment. After 10 days of treatment began after about 2-3 days, a very dry skin in the palms, which I cream now regularly. Next time, I’ll probably do without this drug better.

    Amoxicillin for Tonsillitis

    Hello, had tonsillitis (Bacterial) and therefore got my doctor Amoxicillin 1000 Heumann prescribed. Since I’ve never been allergic to medications before, I figured it would stay that way. Everything went well until the sixth day of treatment, my tonsils were no longer inflamed so much for the success of amoxicillin. But at 9 o’clock in the morning I noticed a rash in the area of the bronchi and shoulders. Around 12 o’clock, this rash spread to my whole body and started itching. A terrible feeling … :). Anyway, I got a headache and a strong fever with chills, etc. Little by little my face and neck swelled up so that I could barely breathe. At this time, I was already on the way to an emergency clinic, where I was treated immediately. A doctor said that this side effect can certainly be life-threatening. If the side effects are left untreated, the respiratory tract can gradually swell! So much for the risks. I therefore recommend this product to anyone who is previously aware of what he is allergic to, for all the others out there please do not take any risk because that can quickly end bad!

    Amoxicillin for Borreliose

    For the first few days, I felt completely exhausted, as if I had a cold. In addition, I had soft stool and always a little nauseous, but without vomiting. The fatigue and feeling sick as well as the nausea subsided after about five days by itself. On the eighth day of taking it I got extreme itching and within hours my half body was covered in red spots. Worst of all was the itching on hands and feet. In consultation with the doctor I had to exchange the amoxicillin for another antibiotic. In addition, I got an antiallergic. To make matters worse, I have the feeling that I feel no satisfaction in my actions – almost like a depressive mood.

    Side effects: Exhaustion; Itching; Nausea
