bulging blue veins in palms and fingers after taking penicillin vk 500mg

Hand problems
Recently noticed that about 3 days after finishing Pennicillin (penicillin) vk 500mg for dental infection, I began to notice I have bulging blue veins in both my palms and blue almost rope like veins that are very visible on my fingers of both hands. I also have blister like swellings that are skin color on both palms. The swellings are where palms meet fingers. I can't use my hands to open bottles and things of that nature due to tingling in my hands from the swellings and from the veins near surface of hands. Went to ER and they only visually looked and said they see nothing wrong with veins and swellings probably from eating to much salt, which is not true because my diet hasn't changed and I haven't experienced this before.  I have an appointment in few days but do you know any possibilities of what this may be from and could it be a reaction to penicillin vk 500mg?

Throughout your life your veins will do this...this is normal.
The swelling and bumps are not as normal.
Normally, in cases where allergies are present, you will experience: hives ( raised red blotches, itchy or painful ) swelling of the tongue/ lips/ throat, dizziness, and many other symptoms.
Your hands could have become swollen from salt, over-usage, arthritis, etc.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your input. I have not changed my diet and have not eaten a lot of salt. The swellings are more like flesh colored blisters on both hands. Although I have not experienced any other known symptoms of allergic reactions to penicillin vk, I know I have not experienced my veins bulging before taking it. I will be having a venous duplex and cbc test soon, to see what's going on.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The ‘blue’ fingers could be due to an allergen. It could also be due to circulatory problems, temperature problems or a rash. You will need to see if any other allergens are triggering this reaction. You may also need to notice if ‘cold’ is precipitating your symptoms. So, go ahead and have the tests done and discuss these options with your doctor when you happen to meet him next time.  

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
