Penicillin Allergy Testing
At Family Allergy & Asthma Care, we offer penicillin allergy testing. This is a safe and effective way to rule out the drug allergy in patients with a remote or vague history of reacting to penicillin. Approximately 10 percent of the population reports being allergic to penicillin, which makes it the most commonly reported drug allergy. Ninety percent of the patients labeled as penicillin-allergic test negative when they undergo diagnostic skin testing and drug challenge.
Testing for peace of mind
Penicillin skin testing expands antibiotic options for you and allows your provider to prescribe less expensive, narrower-spectrum, and less toxic antibiotics. We can help relieve your mind from the worry of penicillin allergy.

CAN I OUTGROW A PENICILLIN ALLERGY?
Penicillin is one of the most commonly reported drug allergies. However, at least 80% of people who were penicillin allergic will no longer be allergic 10 years after the reaction. In fact, 95% of people labeled allergic turn out to have negative testing and can take penicillin again without problems.
