Penicillin Allergy

If penicillin allergy is listed in your medical record, chances are you are not  allergic. The vast majority of individuals with this label are not truly allergic. Testing for penicillin allergy is available. Ruling out penicillin allergy is  important to allow for the prescribing of this class antibiotics. This reduces the prescribing of antibiotics that are more likely to have side effects, increase emergence of resistant bacteria, and are much more expensive.

To be evaluated you may schedule an appointment and indicate you are interested in penicillin testing. The first visit will be a consultation to determine if testing is indicated. The testing procedure will then be scheduled for a second visit.
