Is my child really allergic to that medicine?? (Misconceptions about drug allergies)

A lot of people think they have allergy to medications when they don’t. In this episode, I welcome Allergist and Immunologist Farah Khan to chat about drug allergies and share some misconceptions. We discuss:

  • What a true drug allergy looks like
  • Why not all rashes while on antibiotics are a drug allergy
  • Are true drug allergies hereditary?
  • What to do if you truly feel your child has a drug allergy
