I just want to know if one can " outgrow"  an allergy to penicillin? I am 28 now and was diagnosed with this allergy as a child, I used to wear a medic alert bracelet in school but have not been wearing it for a VERY long time. Is this allery still something I need to worry about?

You can actually have yourself tested with a blood test these days - I would do it if I were you.
