Overview

Allergies to food, insect stings, medications and latex are most frequently associated with anaphylaxis. This severe reaction happens when an over-release of chemicals puts the person into shock. If you have had an allergic reaction in the past, you are at risk of future reactions. 

Call 911 and get to the nearest emergency facility at the first sign of exposure to an allergen./idiopathic urticaria (ongoing, of unknown cause).

Management & Treatment

The best way to understand anaphylaxis and the things that can trigger this severe allergic reaction is to see an allergist who will help you manage your condition.

An anaphylactic reaction should be treated immediately with an injection of epinephrine (adrenaline). Doses, available by prescription, come in an auto-injector that should be always kept with you. Two injections may be necessary to control symptoms.
