Discussions that mention clindamycin

Open to All Other Health Topics board


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
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.
