Drug allergies occur when the immune system reacts abnormally to certain medications, leading to a range of adverse reactions that can vary in severity. These reactions can manifest as skin rashes, hives, itching, swelling, shortness of breath, wheezing, and in severe cases, anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction.

Common medications that can trigger allergic reactions include antibiotics (such as penicillin), nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), certain chemotherapy drugs, and medications used for anesthesia.

Accurate diagnosis and management of drug allergies are crucial for preventing potential harm from future exposures.
