Over 30 million people have claimed to have a penicillin allergy. However, new evidence suggests that most people do not have a penicillin allergy. As a result, the CDC suggest that doctors evaluate patients who claim to have a penicillin allergy. The CDC recommends testing these patients to determine if they have a true penicillin allergy.

This comes after the CDC found that 10 percent of hospitals see patients who claim to have a penicillin allergy, yet after testing are not allergic.
