Anaphylaxis facts: A serious allergic reaction that can be life threatening; requires immediate treatment with epinephrine; certain people are more at risk (if you have asthma, if you have a history of anaphylaxis); typically starts within minutes after contact with your allergen and get worse fast; symptoms usually affect more than one part of the body; may not occur the same way when it happens again (it an be worse or have different symptoms than the past)
Prevent food allergy reactions. Always use soap and water or wipes to clean hands or surfaces. Hand sanitizers do not remove food proteins.
Managing food allergies means you have to carefully read all labels every time, even on non-food items. Ingredients can and do change.
Food allergies can trigger anaphylaxis. When treated promptly with epinephrine, it usually resolves right away. When treatment is delayed, potentially life-threatening complications can happen.
Over-the-counter allergy medicine will not stop anaphylaxis. The first line of treatment for severe allergic reaction is epinephrine.
Symptoms of anaphylaxis usually involve more than one part of the body. Some symptoms impact the mouth, lungs, skin, brain, heart and stomach
