Antibiotics and Salicylates Intolerance

I' m highly sensitive to salicylates currently to the point of having had anaphylaxis 4 times in the past year prior to the diagnosis. I have bad reactions to the colourants and perservatives commonly used in antibiotics and other medications. Unfortunately manufacturers are not required to disclose colourants and perservatives contained in medication. At this point I' m limited to taking Augmentum SR for any infections which is not an ideal situation. This is an overkill for minor infections and of course there is the bigger concerne of what happens when augmentum is no longer effective. Please can you advise if there are any antibiotics which do not contain any plant material including perservatives and colourants?
