Ask Questions to Help Clarify Penicillin Allergies in Kids

Around 1 in 10 children get labelled with a penicillin allergy, but over 90% of these kids aren't actually allergic.

Kids can easily be misdiagnosed, since a symptom of an illness or med side effect can sometimes mimic an allergic reaction.

These misdiagnosed allergies often result in using a different antibiotic that might not work as well...possibly leading to resistance, increased costs, and side effects.
