Medication Allergy Specialty Group Overview

The Division of Allergic Diseases of Mayo Clinic specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of drug allergies.

Clinicians in the Mayo Clinic Division of Allergic Diseases evaluate drug reactions and drug allergies. During an evaluation, the allergist will take a comprehensive history and perform a physical examination. You may be asked to undergo skin testing or blood testing. In certain circumstances, challenge tests or desensitizations might be performed.

If drug allergy is diagnosed, the allergist outlines a management program tailored to your needs. You will also talk with the specialist about possible risks and benefits of medication.
