Can I eat blue cheese with an amoxicillin allergy? I have angioedema and uriticaria from amoxicillin.
BLUE CHEESE PENICILLIN. WHILE BLEU CHEESE HAS A STRAIN OF PENICILLIN IN IT, IT APPARENTLY IS NOT THE STRAIN THAT CAUSES HIVES OR ANGIOEDEMA. DO, HOWEVER, CHECK WITH YOUR PCP OR INTERNIST. BEST LUCK!
No problem. Though the antibiotic penicillin was first isolated in association with certain mold cultures, allergy to penicillin-type antibiotics (such as amoxicillin) is not associated with allergy to ingestion to foods that may contain mold, nor allergy to mold spores in the air.
