I’d like some advice on the antibiotic I’m taking for a dental infection…

Hey, everyone. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Yesterday I saw my dentist for a pretty big abscess on my gum near my jaw. I have a broken tooth that needs to be removed under general anaesthetic and every now and then, I get an infection in it. Unfortunately, the NHS waiting list for dental work under sedation is ENORMOUSLY long. So I’ll be waiting for a while yet.

I’m allergic to a few antibiotics, so I’ve been told to take Penicillin for five days. Which is fine. I usually get a bit of diarrhoea with it, but I have IBS anyway so that’s normal. BUT. This time… I can’t get this burning sensation in my stomach to go away. I’ve tried taking it WITH food and WITHOUT food.. Doesn’t seem to matter. I have GERD, so I suppose it could be that, but it happens usually a little while after I take the stuff and can last for a few hours.

Does anyone have any recommendations? Any handy tips? It’s much appreciated.

Thank you all in advance.

Does anyone experience really strong burning sensations on your hands and feet particularly during the night when the rest of your body is cold?

I usually have to stick my hands and feet out whilst shivering under the covers, and put my hands and feet on really cold surfaces until they cool down!
