|Anaphylaxis is severe, and in some instances, life-threatening allergic reaction. In some people, the reaction can happen within seconds of being exposed to a substance they are allergic to. In others, reactions may take a little more time. From rashes, nausea, and vomiting, to difficulty breathing and shock, anaphylactic reactions can come in many forms. No matter the reaction, it is important that they are treated immediately to prevent fatality or unconsciousness.
The most common way to immediately treat an anaphylactic reaction to an allergen is with an epinephrine pen (EpiPen). These prescription pens are auto-injectors, which can administer a dose of epinephrine to someone experiencing a severe allergic reaction. Epinephrine opens up airways in the lungs and narrows the blood vessels. This gives the person having a reaction time to get proper treatment for their allergy. EZCare Clinic can provide anyone with a prior prescription for an EpiPen with a refill to ensure that they are prepared and protected.
