· Do not ignore early symptoms. Always take a possible reaction seriously and act quickly. Anaphylaxis can occur without skin symptoms or hives
· Not every reaction will always look the same; a person can have different symptoms each time.
· A child may describe their symptoms differently than an adult
Epinephrine is the first line of treatment for anaphylaxis and should be used first, before asthma puffers, antihistamines or any other medications.
