Penicillin Allergy Testing and Oral Drug Challenge

Penicillin is one of the most effective and widely used classes of antibiotics. As such, if a penicillin allergy is suspected, it is imperative to evaluate the validity of that concern.

What Is a Penicillin Allergy Test?

Testing Overview

Penicillin allergy is the most commonly reported medication allergy. Many patients who believe they have a penicillin allergy are not actually allergic to it. Often, an allergy to penicillin will fade over time. It is also common for patients to be misdiagnosed with a penicillin allergy. At the Center for ENT we offer both highly accurate skin testing and an oral drug challenge to definitively evaluate you for a penicillin allergy. These tests are performed under the close supervision of a board-certified allergist.
