HI recently, I was down with a fever and flu. My tonsil was swollen and docs gave me a jab and antibiotics. My fever and flu was ok thereafter but my palm started to feel the burning sensation with redness for the entire week.
Strangely, it was ok when I lifted my hand high up.

I do not have any fever but my hand condition remains. Previously, I had this encounter too when doc gave me antibiotics and it lasted for two weeks.

I do not have any drug allergy previouly. Could this be the start of antibiotics allergy? Can someone kindly advise.

Thanks

  • Look up the antibiotic you were given on www.drugs.com and see if there are similar side effects. Sounds like you are having a sensitivity to the antibiotic, if not an allergic reaction... Please get the very best probiotic supplement you can afford and start taking this daily to help rebuild your intestinal flora. This will prevent your immune system from getting out of whack due to the antibiotic use. Antibiotics work for certain bacterial infections, but if you have the flu it is most likely viral, not bacterial...antibiotics can be overprescribed and cause more harm than good, in my opinion. They certainly have a place, but use them as a last resort, and take a probiotic to get yourself back in balance. Best wishes,DOM
