Thank you for your question. While this could be a result from local
anesthesia it could also be a result from antibiotic use. If your Mohs surgeon
prescribed an antibiotic, please contact their office and let them know the
side affects you are experiencing. Typically upset stomach from use of
antibiotics can be alleviated if you take the antibiotic with food but it is
best to check with your physician before continuing use.
