DRUG ALLERGY

A drug allergy is a bad reaction to a medication or drug that happens when the body’s immune system responds to a drug with an abnormal reaction. Allergic reactions can happen with prescribed medicines as well as those bought from a pharmacy or supermarket. Drug allergies may be mild, moderate or severe but in each case medical help is needed. The most important strategy is to stop the medicine and avoid it in the future. In some cases, an allergy specialist may perform tests to diagnose the drug allergy.
