Am I allergic to penicillin?

I am currently taking penicillin for strep throat and I have had diarrhea (no blood) recently. I have searched around and I can't tell if this is a normal side affect
from taking antibiotics/penicillin or if this is a sign of an allergic reaction. I am fine otherwise so I am thinking it is a side affect but I don't want to take chances.

There are a number of ways to tell if you're allergic to a medication, Most common signs of reactions are rashes, or irritation to the skin. Hives is a big reaction to
such drugs. If you do encounter any of these reactions, you should stop taking the medication, and take Benadryl to counter-act the reaction. Then consult with
the prescribing physician or NPRN asap.
