Insurance?: Insurance may dramatically effect your out of pocket cost for allergy testing & treatment. With insurance the out of pocket cost can be close to $0. Without insurance there is some variation based on charges set by the provider, and the number of things to which you are allergic. Ballpark figure for maximum is $3500 to $5000 for 3 testing and 3 years of treatment. But you save on future meds.

Can't Answer: This is not an answer that can be provided on a format as this. It would be best to contact a local allergist and ask them.

Antihistamine: A short course of antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will help. It is advisable to have your doctor classify the allergic reaction and document in your medical record the type of antibiotic which caused the reaction. Please, always follow directions listed on over the counter meds and better yet double check with a pharmacist.
