Abstract : Higher sensitivity of the skin to antibiotics was found in patients with bronchial asthma and chronic pneumonia than in the group of healthy people. A larger number of positive and intense reactions was observed in the group of bronchial asthma patients. In connection with this, the question arises of the necessity of carefully collecting anamnestic information on the toleration of medicines and the presence of allergic reactions in each bronchial asthma patient, with these facts being recorded in the case history. If case treatment with antibiotics is necessary in patients with this disease, the mandatory use of intradermal tests of antibiotics must be recommended before start of treatment. It is sufficient to inject 5000 units of the antibiotics (and not 10,000 or 20,000 units), as indicated in the directions.
