Penicillin Allergy?

Some Allergists say 90% of those who say they are allergic to penicillin are in fact not allergic. Eliminating penicillin as a treatment option is potentially detrimental when you are very sick in the hospital with a bacterial infection, have strep throat, or have a bacterial skin infection. It might be wise to see an Allergist for skin testing to confirm if you really are allergic to penicillin.
