Drug Allergy Evaluation

Drug allergies occur when the immune system overreacts to a particular medicine. When this happens, your child may experience skin problems, difficulty breathing, stomach discomfort, or swelling. To prevent the occurrence of adverse reactions, drug allergy testing for children is essential.
