I heard a lot of people who are allergic to Penicillin are so because of them being exposed to it as a child (usually because of ear infection)
    I'm diagnosed as hyper allergic to penicillin near as I recall now. Got a shot in my youth, stopped breathing, turned blue and died for a bit. My parents say the only thing that saved me was an old country doctor was in the hospital visiting and happened to witness part of it. I suppose there was a counter agent used at one time to stop the affect and I was injected with that is what my mother told me. That would have been around 1960 as it occurred about the same time my sister died so parents really freaked out about loosing both of us.

    Biologically wise I've been told over and over that at that time they had basically what was called dirty penicillin. Still penicillin but the creation process was not always sanitary so other things could also be in the mix. But because of the severe reaction the doctors won't even try it to see if it was that particular batch or if I am still hyper allergic to it. Myself I'd prefer them not to try as if it did happen again might not be as lucky a second time.

    They used to administer epinephrine and something else. Both were antihistamine drugs and stimulants. Then you were put on oxygen to ease the breathing issue. and placed on a watch so more could be administered as needed.

    That could be what it was. Was to young to know myself and my parents don't talk about it to much. To be truthful not sure they recall themselves now exactly what was done as it was long ago and about the same time my sister died shortly after her birth.

    Its pretty much still the protocol for anaphylactic shock--epinephrine, antihistamines, and steroids.

    Ironically (as someone with severe allergies and asthma), I'm allergic to prednisone (the most common steriod used for just about everything). It actually gives me a rash that looks startlingly like secondary syphilis (like someone dipped an eraser on a pencil in pink ink and stamped me with it on my palms and soles and spreading up my arms and legs).

    Yeah my mom said my throat swelled up and I turned orange like a pumpkin. So I just steer clear of it. Though I think she was allergic as well. Can that be passed on?

    Honestly never heard of it even being suggested as being hereditary in any form. I know in my family my aunt is also allergic to it but no one else that I am aware of.

    Allergies can be genetic...its a matter of predisposition (followed by the "right" (wrong?) environmental cues), sort of like addiction, rather than straight inheritance. It also seems to possibly be sex-linked.
