Allergic reactions due to drug use are reactions caused by taking a drug unpredictably.
They are the third leading cause of care at allergology clinics and account for 5%-10% of all adverse drug reactions of allergic origin. Their adverse effects range from a skin rash, itching and swelling of the lips and tongue to an anaphylactic reaction.
In the event of the supposed onset of an unexpected adverse reaction due to taking a drug, the specialist will perform an allergological study to determine and/or confirm the drug causing the reaction.
