Question about antibiotic reaction?
My brother in law was prescribed amoxicillin for an ear infection that was in both of his ears.
My question is, he finished his antibiotics on Fri. Then on Sat. night he had a little itching on his stomach but, he went to bed & had no problems durring the night. Sun. a.m. he had just a little itching, but not bad. Then around 11 a.m. Sun. he started itching really bad,(stomach, face, hands, ). He took 2 benadryl shortly after that. The hives & itching subsided.
This a.m. his itching started back up on the face, neck, hands & stomach again. He took 2 more benadryl this a.m. & he's feeling better.
Is it possible to have a reaction to an antibiotic on the last day of taking it??
Thanks for any help.
