Re: allergic to most antibiotics

I don't think I took more antibotics than the next guy, as I was growing up - I think I just am overly sensitive to them.. I wish I knew why. I wondered if it had something to do with my hypothyroidism (it IS an autoimmune disease, which is why I wonder), but I haven't found anything connecting the two.

They all make me break out in hives - which I guess my doctors consider bad enough. Thank goodness it's not anaphlactic shock, but still, they took me off them immediatley, and advised me not to take them again.
