Penicillin Challange Clinics
Allergy immunotherapy works by giving repeated doses of an allergen, thereby stimulating an immune response in the body which causes the patient to build up an immunological tolerance.
For more information and to see if you are a candidate for Immunotherapy please contact our clinic.
Urticaria, also known as hives, is an outbreak of swollen, pale red bumps or plaques (wheals) on the skin that appear suddenly -- either as a result of the body's reaction to certain allergens, or for unknown reasons. Hives usually cause itching, but may also burn or sting.

If the diagnosis of a penicillin allergy is uncertain, a graded drug challenge may be recommended. With this procedure, you may receive up to five doses of the suspect penicillin, starting with a small dose and increasing to the desired dose. This test is done under close medical supervision in a fully accredited medical envoirment.
