Choose the style you prefer, and we will engrave it with your cephalosporin allergy and other pertinent information.
Cephalosporins are some of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics on the market because they tend to be effective for common bacterial infections such as staph infections, strep throat, bronchitis, and tonsillitis. Like all antibiotics, some people are allergic to some or all of the drugs in this family. The reactions can be mild, moderate, or severe. Severe allergic reactions can be life-threatening situations including anaphylaxis.
A CEPHALOSPORIN ALLERGY ALERT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE
As with any allergy that may result in anaphylaxis, we highly recommend wearing medical ID jewelry at all times if you are allergic to cephalosporins for a variety of reasons:
- If you are allergic to cephalosporins and take a new prescription not knowing that the drug falls in this family, your reaction may be worse than with previous exposures, leaving you unable to verbally advocate for yourself.
- If you are in an accident or emergency situation and require antibiotics, those treating you need to know that you have drug allergies and they need to know specifically which drugs to avoid.
- If you have a reaction to any medication, EMTs and ER physicians need to know that you have drug allergies, as this is critical information that will better enable them to treat you.
- If your child has a cephalosporin allergy, s/he may not remember or be able to tell EMTs or other First Responders this in an accident or emergency setting.
If you have a cephalosporin allergy, wearing medical ID jewelry is imperative. We recommend listing your name, diagnosis(es), any medications, all allergies, and multiple emergency contact numbers. We also recommend discussing what to engrave with your doctor or nurse. They often have the best suggestions!
