MILEY SINUS EMERGENCY

Miley Cyrus
' hospitalization was triggered by a sinus infection gone horribly wrong, TMZ has learned.

Reps for Miley tell us, the singer got an Rx for an antibiotic called cephalexin (brand name Keflex) to treat a sinus infection after getting diagnosed last week in North Carolina.

We're told within days Miley's throat swelled to the point she could barely talk. She was rushed to the hospital Tuesday night and, according to her rep, doctors determined she had an extreme allergic reaction to the drug.

We're told Miley never got a cephalexin script before so she had no idea she was allergic.

She'll remain hospitalized until her condition improves. Her doctor says an allergic reaction of this kind can last 27 days.

An allergic reaction would show up right away, not days. Also would not take 27 days to clear up. Rehab much.

This might very well be the truth. I'm a lot older than Miley and the only thing I'm allergic to is Keflex and its cousins. It is referred to as a "critical" allergic reaction. As in I can die from exposure.

Allergy to meds don't always show up quickly sometimes happens when they build up in your system.

Miss Cyrus your nasal cavitys look like crap. Your dead dog has nothing to do with anything.

Stop putting this crap up your nose. Don't waste our time.

I'm calling bullsh*t on this. Keflex is given when severe allergies are present to other antibiotics, like penicillin, it/s the go-to for people who have been on antibiotics for extended periods of time and have no tolerance for most anymore. And "Up to 27 days" is awfully specific.
Sounds like an overdose and some quickie rehab to me.
