This is Dr. David
it does sound like a possible allergic reaction.
Would that happen after I have finished taking the antibiotics though?
Piriton or chlorphenamine might not be enough to decrease the allergic reaction
you might need steroid medication to help .
Ok, thanks. Will it likely clear up on it's own or do allergic reactions generally need treatment?
yours needs treatment.
if your skin is starting to bleed.
are you scratching?
allergic reactions can cause your skins to itch.
Only scratching on the dry areas but not a great deal of scratching. My face feels like it keeps burning up and I found a large blood scab on the back of my head but I don't remember scratching my head to get a scab. The spots aren't itchy, although some of them are turning white on top
this still sounds like you need to see a doctor.
you need skin allergy testing to confirm you are truly allergic to penicillin
and then from now on you know to avoid this class of medication.
OK thanks. I will book an appointment for tomorrow. My mother and brother are both allergic but I have always been ok with amoxicillin. I do not think I have taken this type before
best of luck to you
