Hello, Jo Ann! How are you?

This is an antibiotic that's used to treat infections and its normal side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

That syndrome is a possible risk associated with any antibiotic, but it is a very slight risk. There's actually a great chance of having an allergic reaction to this one, since about 3% of the population are allergic to it.

If it's just a skin rash and not an actual infection, then this medication is most likely not appropriate, because it will only treat infections.

Is there anything else I can help with?
