Anaphylaxis

If you have suffered an anaphylaxis, please consider carefully the following recommendations:

  • An allergy specialist should evaluate you to help find and confirm the triggering allergies accountable for the anaphylaxis
  • Ask for specific written information on what you should avoid, i.e. if you have a food allergy, you should know which cross-reactive food-stuffs not to eat
  • Carry your emergency kit including adrenaline (epinephrine) at all times, and use according to your personalized management plan
  • Ask your specialist if you should wear a anaphylaxis alert stating what you are allergic to
  • Always carry with you a copy of your medical report
  • Inform your family, friends and colleagues about your condition, so they can help in case of a new anaphylaxis
