    Afternoon,

    With regards to pilot entry, does anybody know the RAFs stance on Penicillin allergies? I had a mild reaction to a course of amoxicillin as a kid - note, it wasn't a type 1 reaction.

    I have read elsewhere that you are simply issued a med tag as other antibiotics do the same job. Looking for clarification for peace of mind.


    Thanks in advance

    If it wasn't type 1 and you don't need to carry an Epipen, you should be fine. Only a medical professional can tell you otherwise.
