HI and welcome.

If you had local anesthesia previously there is less likely that you become allergic to it. Moreover as a safety measurement you can get the test dose of the local anesthetic before full dose if there is any minor allergic reaction do not get that drug. So stay calm.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Ok Thank you so you are doubtful I will have any allergic reaction to the local anesthetic when I get my teeth done
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 year ago.

You have previous exposure to the drug so no reason to be allergic to LA. So stay calm. you will not have allergic reaction.

I am also quite paranoid about developing a nut allergy and no longer eat them because of this say in the future if I inadvertently ate something with a nut in would it then cause me to become allergic because I am now not eating them sorry for all the questions just need my mind put at ease
