Taking Flagyl & Cipro for perianal abscess: Allergic to Cipro, still take?

So I have a perianal abscess which was drained yesterday. the dr put me on Cipro and flagyl. Strangely, Cipro gives me these ulcerative rashes and itches and once again, this happened. If I just take Flagyl, is that enough or if I cut out Cipro am I really killing my chances of preventing a fistula or recovery from the abscess?

I wouldn't stop taking it without discussing with your doc. Why did they even put you on it if you are allergic???

BTW, Cipro and Levaquin are in the same class and both can cause tendon issues/ruptures.

Talk to your doc. Let them know what is going on so they can tell you what to do. An abscess is not something to mess around with, nor is allergic reaction.
