I am under treatment for Lyme, as far as I know no co-infections.

I had a hive reaction to Amox while pregnant 13 years ago so LLMD has reservations about trying it again ( but we are considering it ) I have heard the allergy testing is not all that accurate but may have that done anyway before I try taking it again.

Has anyone here had a hive type reaction and then some time later successfully taken that same antibiotic without problems?

And in case I can't tolerate the Amox does anyone have any suggestions on what to combine with Azithromycin and Plaquenil for Lyme?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I was told to combine only minocyclin or biaxin with plaquenil. Have not tried it yet.
ART testing could probably indicate if you have an allergy, but it is not scientific.

You need to go into your LLMd's office and do an abx challenge.

You would take a small amount of Amoxi at his office and wait there 2-3 hours to see if you have any severe allergic reactions. If you decide to try this without a challenge make sure to have liquid Benadryl handy and have your LLMd Rx an Epipen.

If you do actually have a penicillin allergy, be also aware you could have a cephalosporin allergy, they are both beta lactams and sometimes people with penicillin allergies are also allergic to the cephalosporins abx.

Also, it is unlikey that you don't have co-infections, just a sad fact. It is possible, but unlikely. The majority of LD patients do have them.
