I was told as a child that I am allergic to neomycin. Apparently I was given it as an ointment and the skin on my hands and feet peeled. I worry now about getting vaccinated for Tetnus because the vaccine does contain neomycin. I've never had an analphylatic reaction before but am nervous. I got all the childhood shots and received a Td shot 11 years ago and a series of Hep B vaccinations required for health care workers six years ago. I got a flu shot a couple of years ago. I've never had any problem with the vaccines. Should I worry, or am I obsessing over nothing. Thanks.
