Likely Penicillin allergy- annoying!

Hi All,
I suffer with thrush and UTI from time to time (4/5 times a year) and usually get prescribed antibiotics in the penicillin family. Amoxicillin or fluclox. This time however the meds have given me slightly swollen lips, sickness and a lot of bone pain in my hips. Has anyone else suffered with this? The older I get the more allergies I seem to be developing so I imagine that's what this is too. It's not too much bother but it can be quite hard picking up my little girl when I'm nauseaos and my hips ache!

Stop the tablets if your lips are swollen. It could get worse and affect your breathing. Get your doc to change them ASAP.

I have an allergy to penicillin.
