Are you really allergic to penicillin? — 2 Comments

  1. Very interesting post. I had an allergic reaction to amoxicillin years ago but never to penicillin. Penicillin always worked well and quickly and I’ve missed it. One doc said it’s possible that penicillin would be ok but was averse to prescribing it. I might look into the allergy testing if it’s covered.

    • It should be covered, although the cost would be like most specialist procedures and go towards your deductible. Unless the test is exorbitantly expensive, it would be worth it, I believe, to have the information. I have not researched the cost yet, and wouldn’t even begin to guess. If you find out, please let me know! Cheers, FN
