What is anaphylaxis?
- Severe allergic reaction that can cause:
- Hives or skin turning red, itchy
- Lips, tongue, throat, mouth swelling
- Difficulty breathing, wheezing, low blood oxygen
- Low blood pressure, lightheadedness, fainting
- Abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting
- Occurs within minutes to hours after exposure to the allergen
- Can be fatal if airways become blocked by swelling and you can't breathe, or if blood pressure drops too low
- Epinephrine is a drug used in the emergency treatment of severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis)
- Can be lifesaving if given immediately; it should be the first treatment given
- If you have had anaphylaxis in the past, epinephrine should be with you at all times
