Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I am sorry for the delayed reply.

The symptoms you have are typically seen in an allergic reaction. You are right in saying that the symptoms are similar to those seen in allergies to penicillin.

Assuming that you didn't have a dose of penicillin in recent days, I would like to find the exact cause for the reaction this time.

Kindly answer the following questions which helps to find out the cause for the same.

Are you on any medications? If yes, please do mention them.
Are you allergic to any food items?
Do you have cold or fever?
Do you have a prostheses placed during the joint replacement?
When was the shunt revised last?

Waiting for your response,
