  • My daughter is allergic to Zithromax and amoxicillin. She broke out in full body hives and looked like a burn victim for over a month! No one else in my family is allergic.

  • Yes penicilin. I took it one time and my throat closed up and I have crushing pains in my chest. Not fun. One of my children is allergic to an anti-biotic. His face swelled up and turned dark red with a rash. I think one of my other children had trouble with Zithromax as well....had red bumps all over the body. ^
