Hello and welcome to ehealth forum, I have read and understood your problem and would like to help you out.
Antibiotic allergy is fairly common, roughly 1 in 15 people experience allergic reaction to antibiotics, most commonly to penicillins
You can get your mother booked for anitbiotic allergy testing to know exactly what antibiotics she us allergic to and when needed use the ones that are safe
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
Dr Khalil
