Beware of antibiotics allergy

“This announcement was paid for by Epocrates.”

I wish to share about the danger of antibiotics allergy. Before I proceed, do look up this site which has a huge library of medicines names, their side effects and other useful information. For example, Zithromax which is an antibiotic commonly prescribed by doctors.

Our body reacts if we have an allergy to antibiotics. I had a shocking discovery when I was prescribed Bactrium for the first time. My whole body broke out in rashes, eyes swollen and I had difficulties breathing. I was ignorant and didn't know that it was an allergy and not the cause of my flu bugs. So, I took the Bactrium a few more times until my sister discovered it. I am lucky I didn't have too much breathing difficulties or I could die.

So, never play around with this. Always be informed and tell your doctor.
