Allergic to Amoxicillin

After taking the medication for my fever and throat infection for 2 days, I developed blisters and rashes (non-itchy) on my fingers and soles. I checked with my cousin who is a doctor and she suspected it was caused by a type of penicilin called Amoxicillin prescribed by my doctor. I was also feeling nauseu and dizzy for about 4 days. I went back to see the doctor yesterday. It is confirmed that the blisters and rashes are caused by Amoxicillin. From my past medical records, she found out that I have been prescribed the same medication before but I didn't react to it. It was odd. Anyway, I don't need to take the Amoxicillin anymore. She gave me medicine for the allergy instead. The photos below were taken today. The blisters are drying up, and there's no more pain.
