does anyone else out there have allergies to these antibiotics? My 3 year old had an allergic reaction to penicillin back in Jan when being treated for pneumonia. He then went on to take Clarithromycin (sp?!) and tolerated that fine. However this past week he needed antibiotics for an ear infection and the doc went to prescribe amoxycilin til I reminded her of his reaction - it wasn't noted in his notes So she gave him cefalexin and here we are a couple of days later with another reaction. Saw the doc this morning and he said to stop the anti-biotics.
From what I have read on the internet asthmatics are quite often allergic to penicillin and if they are allergic to penicillin they are more likely to be allergic to the cefalexin too. Anyone else with this experience? I am quite concerned to have him reacting to two common anti-biotics. If he grows out of his asthma will he grow out of the allergies to meds? Would appreciate any thoughts or experiences.
