Clindamycin cause tongue sores?

My DD had wisdom teeth extracted on Thursday and was put on Clindamycin. Just today she has noticed small little bumps on the edges of her tongue. They are not painful. Could the Clindamycin be causing these? Thanks for any help

Re: Clindamycin cause tongue sores?

Hi, Canadianmom . . . I have a home prescription reference, so I looked up Clindamycin. Generally rash and digestive problems (nausea, diarrhea, etc.) are side effects of this.

I got the inspiration to look up Lidocaine (most commonly used anesthetic by dentists) and found that mouth, throat and tongue swelling is a side effect. You should contact the dentist as soon as possible to make sure what anesthetic she was given and what to do or expect if it was this.

Best of luck! I hope the bumps go away soon.

Re: Clindamycin cause tongue sores?

Thank you Lindaru. I really appreciate your help. The bumps don't seem to be getting any worse ( or better for that matter) In the wee morning hours when I couldn't sleep the thought occured to me that maybe from the antibiotics she is beginning to get thrush (yeast)? I am having her eat some good Yohgurt with active bacteria cultures to see if that will help. If not I will contact her oral surgeon or our GP for some advice. Thanks again for taking the time to help!
