I'm on clindamycin for a stomach infection. I'm only on the third day and I'm supposed to take it for another seven days. I developed a mild rash on the first day of the medication. I called my doctor and he said to continue taking it and to use an over-the-counter ointment for the rash if I need to.
I got a hydro-cortisone ointment from the pharmacy, it seemed to help at first but not anymore. My rash on my arm seems to have spread a little more today and it's itching a lot. I haven't called my doctor yet because I think he will tell me that it's okay. But I'm really worried, what should I do?
