I was in the hospital and was given ampicilian thru an iv .
unfrtuanatly I had a reaction to it and developed a bad rash on my buttocks and back and under both arms
. the told me to take benadril and a benidril cream .
I personally think is getting worse . however it been less than 24 hours .is this going to continue to get worse before it gets better, and is there anything else I can do to retard it.

Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Uzair.
I am reviewing your post and will get back to your reply momentarily.

It would start improving in couple of days. I would recommend you to continue tablet benadryl and apply 1% hydrocorticone cream if benadryl cream is not that effective. Observe for another day if it does not begin to improve do followup with your doctor.

Hope this helps.
