Skin Allergy Test

  • Rui Zeng


In the course of clinical diagnosis and treatment, some drugs including penicillin, streptomycin and cephalosporin may cause allergic reactions, manifesting as hypotension, pharyngeal edema, bronchial spasm, even death. Therefore, skin allergy tests should be done before the administration of these drugs. The technique and result of cephalosporin and streptomycin allergy skin test are basically the same as that of penicillin, so we use penicillin as an example.
