Allergies board

hi everyone. about 10 years ago i was put on BIAXIN for mono. Well I broke out in horrible hives because i was allergic. Yesturday i was put on CLINDAMYCIN ( generic name for CLEOCIN) and now im getting lttle red dots ( sort of like flea bites) that are terribly itchy. just wondering if anyone knows if there is a relation between these 2 antibiotics. I found a site online that suggests both of these meds to treat pneumonia but thats the most info i got.
My brother in law caught a virus last week that gave him hives all over... So im having a hard time tellng the difference.
The doctors office ( and the dentist for that matter) are both closed right now so im not sure what to do.
help please!
