Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!
I am not sure why penicillin is the last resort for you. However penicillin allergy itself is very dangerous. Even if it causes mild reaction at the first dose, subsequent doses’ cumulative anaphylaxis is itself life threatening. Today there are many alternatives to penicillin.
It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage without further details. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
