    On my 4th day of the pack I too developed hives. It seems like many of the cases are from the genetics made in Israel or India.

    My daughter, age 12, has BAD hives on her low back, most likely from the z-pak. (and they claim allergic reactions are UNcommon for z-pak?) we were at the end of the dosing, too!

    Zithromax Z-Pak canker sores, diarrhea, nausea, poison, medication
    In addition to the diarrhea and nausea almost everyone else had, this medication made my throat break out in canker sores. Now I can't eat anything without pain. I couldn't even finish the 6 pill course and will never take this poison again.
