There are OTHER choices of antibiotics for abcessed tooth.:(

I have to get my tonsils out very soon, so this is my last hope for strep to be gone! So far so good. My throat does not hurt, my side effects are hardly anything. When I have to go, I have to go.

    I took my first dose at 11pm and woke up at 6am with severe itching around the back of my neck, I have hives/rash on my neck, back, arms, legs, hips...everywhere! I have never had a reaction to any medication. I'm calling my doctor as soon as the office opens!
