Hello, Izzy! How are you?

Yes, it can be prescribed for that, it is just a broad spectrum antibiotic.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Have you been cleaning the piercing as instructed? How old is the piercing?

It is over 6 months. I never had any issues with it until just 2 days ago. 2 weeks ago I had the top part changed from the original piercing because the starter is huge and now is about half that size. Could it be from changing it? They are very careful with cleanliness where I had it done. They wear gloves and clean it right away. I cleaned it a couple things a day and then just switched to one time a day after a week.
