You're very welcome, Francoise. I found this very educational too and
I enjoy googling various subjects. I do it all the time. I'm actually a
retired primary teacher. My husband and I live in Ontario, not Moonbeam.
Moonbeam is such a lovely name for a town. Anyway, I'm glad to hear
you will be following up with the medic alert bracelet. It really is well worth
the money and could save your life one day. Be well. Eve :)

Hello fbeau,

Just did some quick research. After searching the question on the internet,
Is penicillium (4) the same as penicillin? , I came up with the following information. " Penicillium chrysogenum is a fungus, common in temperate and subtropical regions and can be found on salted food products, but it is
mostly found in indoor environments, especially in damp or waterdamaged
buildings. It ( penicillium) was previously known as penicillium notatum.
( Pencillium Notatum is latin ) Penicillium is the source of several
_____________ lactam antibiotics, most significantly penicillin.

With this information in mind, if you're allergic to penicillium (4) on your
allergy test than you are also allergic to penicillin. You might consider
getting a medic alert bracelet or medic alert necklace. If you were ever
unconscious, then the attending medics would not give you penicillin
if they saw a medic alert bracelet or medic alert necklace. I'm also allergic
to penicillin. The reactions from penicillin if you are allergic to it can be
extremely serious. I wear a medic alert bracelet. It's a whole system of
protection and well worth the money. Be well. Evewisewoman (Eve).
