I've just found out the hard way that I'm allergic to yet another antibiotic. I went in for hand surgery yesterday, and I had a reaction to the vancomycin they gave me. Red, hot, itchy and a little loopy. Today, I have red dots on the arm they had the IV in.
This isn't the first time this has happened either. I've reacted to keflex, doxycyline, amoxicillin, clindamycin and levaquin. Whenever I have to have a new antibiotic, I react to it within a few days. I'm just wondering if I should tell any doc I see that I should never have any antibiotics. Does anyone else have this issue with antibiotics?
I'm feeling incredibly wiped out and drained today, as usual after I react to something. Its just kind of annoying that the antibiotic reaction is bothering me more than the surgery.
