I am allergic to penicillin and have now been prescribed erythromycin 250 mg instead. I do know that I really need the antibiotics in this case and it is unavoidable really, but I am still worried. Are there any side effects of erythromycin? Is there any chance I am allergic to this as well?

I don't think you will be allergic to both erythromycin and penicillin, but I can't answer your question about that with absolute certainty. As far as the side effects go, I think that penicillin is normally the drug of choice because it has fewer side effects than erythromycin, which is said to be quite heavy on side effects. Vomiting, diarrhea, pain in your abdomen and nausea all go with the territory.
