Allergic reaction to solodyn

My son suffered an allergic reaction to solodyn. He was prescribed for acne. He was on the medication for 1 month with no reaction. Was then put on a different antibotic for one month and then switched back to Solodyn. After three days on the Solodyn, he broke out in a rash. Large bumps most in big clusters with rash. Severe itching. ## I am on Solodyn and it is making my face very red, dry and irritated. It is also causing a rash on my neck ## I took Solodyn and broke out in a rash on my face neck and chest. I stopped taking it and the rash cleared up. ## my son took solodyn for the first time ever only on it for a month give or take and his face is broke out like crazey a rash like too-- took him back to derm she said it was acne I disagree- taking prednisone now trying to decrase ras...

solodyn diarrhea

Is it possible to take Solodyn for months without any side effect and then develop C-diff.? Would taking 10 days of Amoxicillin, 500 mg 2/day, increase the possibility of this occurring? ## Hello, Anne! How are you? It could be either/or, actually. It's hard to say which one may have caused it. What has your doctor advised?
