Allergy Bracelets

Pencillin Allergy BraceletOne of the most common medical allergies is to penicillin – possibly because it is one of the most common antibiotics of all time. Having an allergy bracelet that tells treating professionals you are allergic to penicillin is one of the surest ways to prevent disastrous anaphylactic shock. Anaphylactic shock is an extreme – and rare – event. Most people simply come out in symptoms like rashes, hives, itchy eyes and swollen lips, tongue, or face. The symptoms of an anaphylactic reaction, which can be deadly, usually happen within an hour of taking penicillin. Symptoms include difficulty breathing, hives, wheezing, dizziness, loss of consciousness, rapid or weak pulse, skin turning blue, diarrhoea, nausea, and vomiting.

If you are worried about penicillin allergic reaction in your family you can undertake a form of de-sensitisation therapy. This type of solution should be taken under your doctor's supervision. It works by taking small amounts of the penicillin and gradually increasing how much you take. This lets your immune system "get used to" the medicine, and you may no longer have an allergic reaction. Desensitisation may have to be repeated if you have to use the antibiotic again in the future (desensitisation doesn't last long).
