why are antibiotic allergies not considered hereditary?


I have potential deadly allergies to penicillin, amoxicillin and other sulfa drugs. However when my sons were born they claimed there was no need to be concerned that I passed them on to my boys.

Allergic reactions are due to your body overreacting to what it thinks is a foreign infectious substance, the body’s defence mechanism and reactions isn’t directly inherited like that. https://youtu.be/zk_oUk0bwxs

To be considered hereditary there would have to be an observable pattern of people passing down allergies to antibiotics to their kids. Since there isn’t, it’s not.
