I am an RN on a med/surg floor I am allergic to penicillin and azithromycin. I spilled liquid azithromycin down one hand and arm. Later that day I started to break out in with 2-3 small blisters. Three days later I had large blisters over same hand and started to spread to my feet legs and arms. I also as a nurse do a lot of wound care and dressing changes to patients with MRSA and staph infections. Has anybody heard of a skin reaction like that from antibiotics just spilled topically and not ingested? Saw dermatologist who thinks it is an autoimmune disorder called Bullous Phemphigoid. Biopsy done but no results yet. Can anybody give me insight about the antibiotic exposure?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
