My eight year old is allergic to amoxicillin, zithromax, clindamycin, and cefzil. We have seen an allergist, and he said there are no tests for antibiotics and that "we have a problem." Can someone please guide me in what to do next? My doctor was hoping the allergist would help guide us for future treatments. I am fearful for any infection like strep throat, ear or skin infections, we have run out of options.
The problem is my daughter has had delayed sensitivity to amoxicillian, zithromax, clindamycin, and cefzil. All full body hives and with the lates episode, labored breathing. So if she is exposed to any of these meds again, the reaction my be quick onset, like anaphylaxis. What other anitbiotics are out there for children?
