Evaluate if Patients Are Really Allergic to Penicillin

You'll see a bigger push for penicillin allergy testing.

Over 90% of patients who say they're allergic to penicillin, actually aren't. Plus, about 80% of those with a severe penicillin allergy will lose their sensitivity 10 years after a reaction.

Identify patients who may be incorrectly labelled as penicillin-allergic. Ask patients to describe the reaction, when it occurred, etc. Use our questionnaire, Investigating Possible Drug Allergy or Sensitivity.
