I recently took amoxicillin to clear up a really sore throat and a week later took flucloxacillan for a boil on my arse. 3 days into the flucloxacillan my whole forehead peeled and revealed a rash which turned out to be seborrhea. Also the same time all of these spots started appearing all over my body which I think is guttate psoriasis. Both conditions seem to be getting worse. I had std,HIV and full blood work done and all came back normal. Could the antibiotics have caused this or would it be something more sinister?
Hi, thanks for your reply. I stopped the antibiotics immediately after I noticed my head peeling but it has gone out of control. I'm not at all superficial so the sight of it doesn't really bother me as I don't spend much time in front of a mirror. Just worried it could have been something else. I googled it and everything is connected to HIV or some other bad infection nobody wants. I will look out for the almond stuff so thanks. I'm already on probiotics but not sure if they are the right ones. Just grabbed em from the chemist.
