Your symptoms are likely due to allergy due to Amoxicillin.

Once this reaction subsides; your doctor may like to give you another antibiotic.

With a dental infection; you would require further antibiotic, I agree.

The lumps around the ear and neck may be due to dental infection induced lymph nodes.

Application of clove oil, Motrin and salt water gargles may help you meanwhile.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

I can't see my dentist till wed do you think this will be okay?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
sorry right now we are in a cri
sis not much money around these days so sorry

Apologies for any intrusion of those automatic offers for phone calls. These are produced by the website automatically and outside of my control.

The recommendation is to stop antibiotic (when there is an allergic reaction) and to defer another antibiotic till the reaction subsides (unless there is something serious or life threatening).

If you do not have progressive increasing pain or fever; it is okay to wait till Wednesday.

It is privilege asssisting you.

I quit taking it .last one was at 7pm saturday and by 6am this morning the efects started to leave now I just feel sore all over.How can I find out why I am having these affects.

You can get in vivo and in vitro allergy tests for antibiotics.

These effects are allergic reactions to antibiotic.

The tests will recommend which one would agree with you.
