Amoxicillin is a Penicillin and the symptoms you describe represent an allergic reaction to this drug. I would advise you to go to the Emergency Room tonight. You will need to be checked out and you will need IV steroid to be followed by oral steroid. It's easiest to treat early than late. You officially have Penicillin allergy and you should avoid these Antibiotics in the future.
