It sounds like you have had an allergic reaction to your antibiotic.  However, it could also be from the narcotic pain medicine you are taking.  You need to call and see your doctor and get treated.  Sometimes simply stopping the medication will work but often antihistamines or steroids are needed.  Good Luck.

Thank you for your question. If it is from antibiotics and started to subside, it takes time to disappear completely. Meanwhile only symptomatic treatment and follow you PS instructions.
