Allergy Question
March 20, 2013 at 7:34 PM

Not a hot topic but didn't want to derail the other post:

I broke out in a rash after taking Penicillin as an infant and have always been told I'm allergic. How allergic, I have no idea. I may not really even be.

Anyway....

Today I saw some brie that was infused with mushrooms and since I have Celiac I'm always scanning labels.

On it was listed penicillin. I'm sure its a bacteria in the cheese. Never seen this before...

Should I avoid it or go get some? It sure looks good! Would this set off a penicillin allergy?

     Try webmd.  I'm sure there is tons of material there on penicillin reactions.  Or google reactions to penicillin, or why is there penicillin in cheese or will penicillin in cheese cause an allergic reaction to penicillin?  Let us know if you figure this one out.  Just curious......

    Last time it was prostate cancer....

     Go sit in your loal emergency room on a slow night and give it a tiny taste.  Then if you're still alive 20 minutes later, try a slightly bigger taste.

       This. LOL.

     No, really try a small amount and see how you do. Allergies can go away.
