My 18 yr old...

My 18 yr old daughter went to urgent care on 02/17/18 after she caught a bad cold and she began to have severe ear pain. After seeing the clinician she was prescribed Amoxicillin Clavulanate Potassium Tablets. Yesterday she broke out in hives on her entire body. She has been taking benedryl as well as using cortizone cream but nothing is helping. She has taken Amoxicillin in the past but not with the Clavulanate Potassium. Could this be an allergic reaction to that? She only has 4 pills left. Should she stop taking her medication?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

None

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. Healthy 18 yr old. Only get the occasional migraine.

only slight cough remains

Yes, it is most likely an allergic reaction to one of the constituents of the antibiotics. If she took it for 3 days an cold settled down then she can stop taking it and continue benadryl meanwhile till hives get better.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
