Flagyl reaction?

Hello, I’ve been taking Flagyl for 5 days. I noticed today that my forehead is slightly swollen, just above my brow bone. The skin is also sensitive to the touch in certain spots. I know rash and face swelling are possible symptoms. Should I stop taking the medication?

Please STOP taking the medication and call your doctor right away. If you don't have a doctor, go to the ER. This could be an allergic reaction and could be very dangerous.
Yes, stop the medication and contact your doctor! Also, take Benadryl 25 mg pill every 6 hours as needed, helps with swelling/reaction. It makes you sleepy, watch out if you are working.
Take care!
