Yes and No: To be allergic to a medication will restrict the use of that medication - that's the bad part. However, typically there are other medications that can be used if needed and if the one medication one os allergic to is really needed there are ways to administer that medication. ...Read more
IgE antibodies: Penicillin binds to a protein in the blood and the combination is treated as an invader. Instead of creating the usual IgG antibodies the immune system mistakenly forms IgE antibodies. The combination activates Mast cells which then release various, potent biochemical mediators that have various effects on multiple organ systems including the skin, lungs and blood vessels. ...Read more
Malaria tablets: Potentially any. There isn't an association between penicillin allergy and allergy to any malaria medication, whether it is for prevention or treatment.

You shouldn't: But it has nothing to do with penicillin allergy. The two drugs are totally unrelated, but mdma is a dangerous drug in kids, even more so in a 39 year old, who should of given up that kind of nonsense long ago. Many mdma pills are not pure, and may contain other related chemicals, some of which are even more dangerous than the ecstacy itself. Molly, a particular brand of mdma has caused deaths. ...Read more
No: It doesn't.Get a more detailed answer ›
Probably: It would be unlikely to develop an allergic reaction from touching another person who has been taking an antibiotic that a person is sensitive to. With that said, there could be enough haptenated penicillin metabolites in bodily secretions to trigger a reaction in a highly allergic person. In other words, closed mouth kissing should be safe. ...Read more

Maybe, maybe not: Many people break out in rashes during illness and if started on an antibiotic, the antibiotic may be be assumed to have caused the reaction. This may not be a true allergy. Yet people do acquire allergic reactions to new things as they get older, and it could be real. Blood tests can reveal if it is a true allergy which would likely persist over time vs a non allergic reaction that may not be real. ...Read more
Probably not: Penicillium notatum is a mold/fungi that if allergic, can cause symptoms like runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, worsening of asthma symptoms, etc. Penicillin antibiotics do not contain enough of the mold, and when ingested, would be a different reaction.
