Sean's health story

Sean learned that many people could wrongly believe they have a penicillin allergy, so he wanted to investigate his own status. Here’s his story:

“After several allergic reactions during my childhood, I had assumed for circa 35-years that I was allergic to penicillin, but I recently saw an article that reckoned 80% of people wrongly believe they have this allergy.

I had discovered Medichecks 2 years ago and have since ordered multiple tests, such as the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) Blood Test and Advanced Well Man Blood Test.

I’m very impressed with the speed and efficiency of the service. Using Medichecks has allowed me to take control of regular testing and monitor the effects my lifestyle may or may not be having on my health.

So, due to my previous positive experiences, I did not hesitate to use Medichecks’ Allergy Screen (Antibiotics) Blood Test. This checks to see if you are allergic to 5 common antibiotics, including ampicillin and penicillin.

My results showed that I, in fact, do not have an allergy to penicillin, which is potentially life-changing as this family of antibiotics is still the first line of defence in tackling many infections.

Given that Medichecks allows me to get the tests I want when I want, I intend to remain a customer and will continue to champion the service to friends and family.
