Am I Allergic to Penicillin?

Many people list penicillin as an allergy, but may not really be allergic.  They may have been told that they had a reaction as a small child or baby or may have had symptoms due to another cause.  Many common infections, such as sinus and ear infections, respond well to penicillin based antibiotics, but your doctor may be avoiding these due to your listed allergy.  Testing is available to find out if you are truly allergic and is relatively simple.  Allergists/Immunologists like those at Allergy Associates and Asthma, Ltd.  have the best expertise in diagnosing and treating penicillin and other allergies.  To learn more about what’s involved with penicillin testing, click the link below to go to a well written “Patient Page” by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).  The image is also from the JAMA article.  “Am I Allergic to Penicillin?” JAMA Patient Page
