Anaphylaxis is terrifying. Do you know what to do?
If asthma is scary… Anaphylaxis is terrifying. Especially if you are a parent of a kid with severe allergies.
Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that involves more than one organ system (for example, skin, respiratory tract, and/or gastrointestinal tract). It can begin very rapidly, and symptoms may be severe or life-threatening.
This is the kind of reaction some people carry epi-pens to treat.
Recognizing the symptoms, and reacting quickly can literally mean the difference between life and death. Please read this information from the NIH. You never know when you might need it. https://www.niaid.nih.gov/topics/anaphylaxis/Pages/default.aspx
