My son was taking 200 mg of dynacin daily for 8 days for acne. He had taken this in 100 mg dosage on two prior occassions without reaction. On the eigth day he developed swelling in his fingers in the afternoon which spread to severe swelling of his hands, elbows, and finally face. His blood pressure dropped drastically. He has been taking prednisone and virtec which suppresses the reaction but he is still breaking out in hives between dosages of medication. Is it likely that his allergic reaction is to the dynacin?
