Fluconazole allergy reactions are uncommon, but if untreated right away by a doctor, they can become very serious. Call your doctor if you experience any of the following symptoms: yellowing of the skin or eyes, darker urine, lighter stools (bowel movements), nausea, or a strong urge to vomit.

If you are unable to reach your doctor, visit the emergency room of the closest hospital. In patients with serious conditions such as AIDS or cancer, rare cases of severe rashes with skin peeling have been reported. Look under "Fluconazole Interactions." Shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, fever, chills, throbbing in the ears or heart, swelling of the eyelids, face, mouth, neck, or any other part of the body, or skin rash, hives, blisters, or skin peeling are all indications of an allergic reaction. If you develop a rash while taking fluconazole, notify your doctor immediately. If you are taking erythromycin, astemizole, pimozide, quinidine, or cisapride (Propulsid), do not take fluconazole to prevent a potentially serious reaction. Fluconazole can, in some people, cause changes in heartbeat when combined with these medications.
