    A llergen:  Only one value (UNII or Medication) can be entered, not both.
    • UNII: Used for ingredient allergies (e.g. latex, peanuts).  Enter a UNII to show this allergy on the CCD.  Must be manually entered as a 10 character, uppercase, alphanumeric code.  To search for UNII codes see http://fdasis.nlm.nih.gov/srs/srs.jsp.
