Know the Signs and Symptoms of Anaphylaxis
A life-threatening allergic reaction can make someone feel sick in many different ways. While symptoms of an allergic reaction vary from person to person, reactions can quickly progress to become life-threatening.
The symptoms of anaphylaxis are unpredictable. A mild reaction to an allergen one time can be life-threatening the next.
Immediately Respond by Administering Epinephrine
Epinephrine’s the only first-line treatment for anaphylaxis. It could stop the most dangerous symptoms of anaphylaxis, including expanding the airways and reducing throat swelling.
Antihistamines do not treat the life-threatening symptoms of anaphylaxis.
Everyone with a known severe allergy should have two epinephrine auto-injectors readily available.
Failure to administer epinephrine early in the course of treatment has been associated with negative health consequences, even in, rare cases, death.
Seek emergency medical care right away.
After administering an epinephrine auto-injector, contact or visit your local emergency medical services right away (e.g., dial 911).
Please consult your healthcare professional about the treatment plan that's right for you.
