What is Anaphylaxis?

Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that can be life-threatening. The leading cause for anaphylaxis is drugs. However, certain foods, food additives and insect stings are also common causes of anaphylaxis.

Anaphylaxis Symptoms

The following are common symptoms experienced with a severe allergic reaction.

  • swelling of the throat
  • loss of consciousness
  • constriction of airways
  • pale skin
  • hives
  • weak pulse
  • nausea, vomitting, diarrhea
  • dizziness/fainting
  • abdominal cramps or pain
  • sense of impending doom
  • Anaphylaxis Treatment

    Anaphylaxis is a medical emergency and needs to be addressed right away. If someone is having a severe allergic reaction, administer an epinephrine injection into their leg as soon as the symptoms occur. The quicker the reaction is treated the less severe it could be. Once the epi-injection is adminstered, seek further treatment by visiting an urgent care or emergency room as soon as possible.

    Anaphylaxis Prevention

    If you are prone to severe allergic reactions or anaphylaxis, your doctor may require you to carry an emergency epinephrine autoinjector or epi-pen with you at all times.

    If someone is experiencing anaphylaxis or a severe allergic reaction, call 911 immediately.

    If you would like to schedule an appointment or have any questions about anaphylaxis, call 1-800-778-9923 or visit the Allergy & Asthma Center location near you.
