Q: 

how long does an allegic reaction to Amoxicillian last?

A: I had the same thing when I went on Amoxicillin for strep throat. It was horrible! Much worse than the strep throat was in the first place. My rash lasted less than a week, but I know how it can feel like forever. I think I might have already been on the downhill, but when I got a Cortisone shot (at least I am pretty sure that is what it was) it started to become bearable. So, if you go to the doctor again beg her for a Cortisone shot. It was the only thing that really provided me any relief. Other than that all I can say is just do your best not to look at yourself and the rash

Q: 

how long should allergic reaction to medication in Stellate Ganglion block last?

A: 11 days ago Hello. Sounds like a difficult time for you. What does the doc say about the rash and the foggy ness? Sounds like you would be better off this.

Please do not drive while feeling like this. One mistake could change too many...
