It may seem like common sense, though it’s worth repeating: The first step in managing life‑threatening allergies is to always avoid your allergens.
LIFE HAPPENS. Be Prepared.®
Being prepared means having a plan to:
- Avoid known allergens
- Know what symptoms to watch for
- Use an EpiPen® (epinephrine injection) Auto-Injector if a life-threatening (severe) allergic reaction occurs
- Get emergency medical help right away
Don't wait until an emergency to learn how to use your EpiPen® Auto‑Injector. Watch the video below for the correct technique. Practice with your EpiPen® Trainers. And make sure everyone who may need to use EpiPen® Auto‑Injector for you or your child or children with potentially life-threatening (severe) allergies does the same. You may order additional EpiPen® Trainers (they're free!) for grandparents, babysitters or anyone else who may one day need to administer EpiPen® Auto‑Injector.
